Simplicity - a design imperative..?

Isamu Noguchi - Tsukubai   1964

"... The further you go into the past or the future, the simpler the design of everything becomes...

The funny thing about simplicity is that somewhere along the way it got tangled up with philosophy, took on moral significance, and ....became a prescriptive design imperative. "

Noguchi - 'Momo Toro',   Storm King Art Center
