Le Corbusier on simplicity

Posted by rigorousm on September 10, 2014

Simplicity is not equivalent to poverty; it is a choice, a discrimination, a crystallization. Its object is purity. Simplicity synthesizes. A ragged agglomeration of cubes is an accidental event, but a synthesis is an intellectual art.

— Le Corbusier, 1950
