I’ve always loved architecture for its clear, inexplicable accuracy. Architecture like Euclidean geometry has always clarified so many concepts that I could never understand, or at least made it easier for me to understand. I love geometry because it is an exact science, just like architecture. My project “Less is more” is inspired by the philosophy of the architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and his concept of essence. Take away to bring to the origin of things, remove, eliminating everything that is not necessary, eliminate all that is superfluous. Pure shapes and colors associated with the architecture of the human body.
