You clearly have no clue about minimalist architecture. The use of clean forms and lines to produce an effect. If you don't understand that you've lost out on half of all architecture. "Detailed" buildings are hard to fit together, and have very little room for error. One mistake is enough to make the thing kitsch a la Dubai.

Imagine how hideous those buildings would look if detailed statues and shapes were tacked on the facade. Childish, backwards and gross.
