Face à la surenchère visuelle sur le web, il s’agit de faciliter la tâche de l’utilisateur en lui permettant de trouver l’information qu’il recherche, tout de suite. Minimalisme et géométrisme conjuguaient déjà le Beau dans l’Architecture physique, il était donc logique qu’en Architecture digitale l’effet fonctionne aussi.
