LESS IS MORE
“While studying at the School of Architecture at UNAM, I was introduced to the genius and his concept, one that was incomprehensible at first, but which gradually became immersed in me and changed me forever.
I understood that as an architect in the 20th century, I had to reject excesses and meaningless decorations. I learned that honesty in shapes was non-negotiable as a value, and that the end must rule over the means. Suddenly, the most solid principles of my career started to take shape.
Today, 30 years later, this concept has become a way of life, reaching and affecting all of its facets.
A powerful, three-word concept where so much is summarized; it is the sum of all ideas; with it, you can fill a cup or build a city.
The genius was Mies van der Rohe. The concept was LESS IS MORE.”
