However, I took inspiration from architects Le Corbusier and Tadao Ando and back home it has to be Charles Correa who have defined minimalism the best. And, it’s interesting to see many young Indian architects are following the same. Make sure that the walls are made of exposed concrete, and use a lot of whites in your decor.”
