The flyleaf defines "minimalism" as architectural design "that uses simplicity to express aesthetic beauty". Many of the 23 examples presented in this coffee table book have the aesthetic simplicity of a shoebox. The exterior and interior photographs are excellent and complemented with brief comments. The functionality of these residences is called into question by the appearance that many are unoccupied. The sites and vistas of many of the example residences are spectacular. Perhaps the perennial attractiveness of Craftsman-style homes suggest that their intimate detail and structural variety reveals the sterility of the minimalist-style?
