I'am a huge fan of simplicity and minimalistic approach, clean, simple  and beautiful, or what they called "Less is more", but i'm not a Buddhist,

any recommended sites that features zen arts, architecture, interior designs?

one important thing that you should remember in zen buddhism is "satori"



you can call it enlightenment or something...

Here's a story I remember, it's about a samurai and a Zen chef. So this samurai kept on complaining why it's taking longer than usual to get his soup. So he waited for hours until he can no longer contain his anger. Then out came the zen chef with his bowl of soup. Upon tasting, the samurai said and asked, this is the best soup i've ever tasted, what's the secret? The zen chef said: it took time.
