    michael graves did not came up with the axiom 'less is bore' however this was also his philosophy. so kung wala sa choices si robert venturi.. then maybe the best answer is si michael graves..

  12. Q.34) It is known as the architecture of the curve line

    A. Roman
    B. Art Nouveau
    C. Renaissance (correct answer)
    D. Baroque (your answer)

    http://www.oldandsold.com/articles23/architecture-101.shtml

    The Baroque style (p. 545) arose first in Rome when architects had become satiated with the old and purely Classic forms and hungered for something fresh and piquant. Classic and Renaissance architecture had' its chief expression in the straight line, with all the limitations this implied, and the Baroque style may be said to be the architecture of the curved line, with all the variety of possibilities to which this gives rise. A large number of churches of the later Renaissance period in the City of the Popes, if not flauntingly Baroque, have at any rate the seed of the new style in the freedom of plan and design. In Rome, the place of its birth, this new version seems more in harmony with its surroundings than in the less brilliant northern climates, and in gazing on the many fountains of the papal city who shall dare to say that the Baroque is wholly bad ? From Rome the style naturally travelled to Naples and many cities of southern Italy, such as the unique little town of Lecce, where it was often used in a discriminating way to produce pleasingly original effects.
