Re Per Corell's comments. I think Per is missing something here. I am not talking about drawings - I am talking about buildings that have been built. Big difference between the two.
Coming back to minimalism - using steel, aluminum, concrete means BIG mass. On the other hand air and the thin membrane is very SMALL/MINIMAL mass. Besides an air support building is 1/10 the cost of a aluminum, concrete, plastic, steel etc. building.
Again by using a transparent membrane - the design itself becomes Minimalistic as well since there is no building to be seen.
