It's not Japanese, but they often take away something after they're 'finished'. It was either Mies Van der Rohe (sp?) or Le Corbusier, both architects. But, it is also true that often, in the handiwork of nonmasters, that less is just less.
I get the feeling that these guys ( as is often the case ) are guys who don't and can't design anything, but can sure write about it.
And don't forget, more is more unless one is moron than off
Mies Van der Rohe ~ His buildings? Eh. He'll always be just another chair king to me. Now, Le Corbusier ~ Worlds more interesting. Me, I'm a Philip Johnson kinda MacBabe, even though I'll never live in glass houses.
Disclaimer: LIttle Sister has a Master's in Architectural History. What I know about architecture is pretty much a product of accidental osmosis.
Anyway, the design thing ~ If I were to leave a comment back at the original link, I'd just have to go with snark ~ Those who can do, those who can't critique.
