What is Architecture Minimalist? Minimalist House Design

The roots of minimalism in architecture is often traced back to the mid to late 1950s. Movement is a reaction to the new style of architecture - and lifestyle - which is being cultivated in the United States. In the U.S. boom in the years after World War II, there is a movement towards a large and exaggerated style of the building. During this era, groomed suburbs and supermarkets all over the map of the cave appeared, and there was a tendency garnish it. Minimalism was developed as a response to a lifestyle that increasingly commercial and consumer are reflected in the design.

Despite the minimalist art (which is sometimes known as a literalist art) has its roots in America, minimalist architecture was born elsewhere. Northern Europe, especially Scandinavia, and Japan is very important in the history of minimalist design, and in fact, this place remains one of the biggest embracers minimalism.

In general, the idea of minimalism can be described as "less is more," or as some designers and architects are fond of saying, "do more with less" minimalist architects use space as a design feature in and of itself .. Rather than attempting to fill the space with features, they create designs where space is as carefully thought out and used as the things they add to the room. basic shapes and straight, clean lines that are also important techniques used in minimalist designs, such as playing with various types of illumination. The result is elegant but not fussy.

Another technique often used is to provide a feature that more than one use. One example might be the floor beneath the heating unit, either form the basis for the room and heating room. This allows the designer to create the optimal utility without crowding the space.

Some of the important architects working in the field of minimalist design includes:
  • Lugdwig Mies van der Rohe
  • Buckminster Fuller
  • Dieter Rams
  • Luis Barragan
  • John Pawson
  • Eduardo Souto de Mouro

Headboard Havens

In this minimalist bedroom, the platform bed rests atop a beautiful dark-wood base, but it's the headboard that creates the wow factor. Designer Candice Olson uses three panels to make the wall pop: a top and bottom panel of tight-grain ash and a middle panel made of recycled pressed wood. Floating side tables with built-in sconces flank the bed.

Create dramatic vertical impact by taking the headboard to the ceiling. Designer Ann Grasso uses the two-toned headboard to help distinguish the sleeping area from the sitting area in this large room.

A huge painting hung over the sleek bed in this modern bedroom creates a dramatic focal point. When hanging a painting as a headboard, be sure to hang it high enough so the pillows won't rest against the canvas. Design by Andreas Charalambous.

Don't want a massive headboard for your bed? Define the space with framed pieces of artwork. Designer Kenneth Brown uses two small pieces of art and flanks the bed with two display cabinets to highlight the bed in this transitional space.

Silk History

Chinese history credits the invention of silk fabric to Yuen Fei, the concubine of an Emperor who ruled in 2,600 B.C. Legend has it she dropped a cocoon into hot tea and it unraveled. She, by reason of the discovery, has been deified and is worshipped as the goddess of silk worms.

Tusah silk is produced by silkworms that feed on oak leaves.
Silk dupioni is produced from 2 silkworms that spin a cocoon together, thus making a strong double-thread silk. Dupioni silk is currently enjoying great popularity.
The finest quality silk is made by mulberry silk moth, Bombyx mori, which, of course, feeds on mulberry leaves.
The average cocoon contains 300-400 meters of silk.
It takes about 5500 silkworms to produce 1 kg (2.2lb) of raw silk!

One ounce of eggs produces about 20,000 worms, which consume a ton of mulberry leaves during their lifetime.

Silk has been unearthed in the Qianshanyang Village of Huzhou in Zhejiang (China) and has been estimated to have been produced 4700 years ago!

The term SHANTUNG (A heavy wild-silk fabric with a rough surface) comes from the region of Shantung in China. The term ORGANDY (crisp cotton or silk fabric) comes from the town named Urgench (in present-day Uzbekistan in Central Asia). It was on the old silk route and was an early market for Chinese silk fabric.
Countries all over the world celebrate silk by issuing stamps in honor of sericulture (silk production).

Early aircraft design utilizing silk stretched over a lightweight skeleton. Strength, durability and weight were critical characteristics that made silk the best choice.

In the next few years, we might be filling our closets with smart shirts that can read our heart rate and breathing, and musical jackets with built in all-fabric keypads. The electronics and computer industries are developing wearable devices and computerized apparel, so that they are virtually invisible.
As with all clothes, computerized apparel starts with the proper thread. Silk fabric is ideal for computerized clothing because it is made with fibers that make it conducive to electricity. The first fiber is just an ordinary silk thread, but running in the opposite direction of the fiber is silk thread that is wrapped in a thin copper foil. It's this copper foil that gives silk fabric the ability to conduct electricity. Not only is this type of silk fabric a good electrical conductor, it's fiber's are spaced with the right amount of space, so that the fibers can be individually addressed.
