Minimalist Architectural Space as a Carrier of Connotations of Social Benefits (High Quality of Life)

  •  Tatyana Gudkova    


In this article, the minimalist architecture is introduced from the standpoint of consumerism, and a minimalist architectural space with its individual features, not only as a living space, but also as a carrier of connotations, demanded in a consumer society: an open space acts as a semantic association or representation of a spiritual, material, and personal freedom; closed (outside) space—as an idea about security, autonomy; single (interior) space with a minimum zoning—as a representation of life at your own pace; large space—as a connotation of wealth, prestige and status of its owner; empty interior space—as a connotation of independence from the artificial world (world of things) and consumerism.
