Simple designs may appeal to the limbic brain, but isn't design and ultimately success contextual? For example, a few successful hi-touch websites:-

Simple: Google; LinkedIn(only recently though!), Apple, Medium, Wikipedia

Complex: Facebook, eBay, Amazon, Craigslist, YouTube, Reddit

Six Myths of Product Development

Most product-development managers are always struggling to bring in projects on time and on budget. They never have enough resources to get the job done, and their bosses demand predictable schedules and deliverables. So the managers push their teams to be more parsimonious, to write more-detailed plans, and to minimize schedule variations and waste.

Overengineering is the most ubiquitous pitfall of product development, both software and hardware. Does this sound familiar?

"Product-development teams seem to believe that adding features creates value for customers and subtracting them destroys value. This attitude explains why products are so complicated: Remote controls seem impossible to use, computers take hours to set up, cars have so many switches and knobs that they resemble airplane cockpits, and even the humble toaster now comes with a manual and LCD displays."

Looking Back at the Architectural Legacy of Zaha Hadid, Dead at 65

Zaha Hadid, the first woman to win the Pritzker Architecture Prize, died on Thursday in Miami at the age of 65. The Iraqi-born, London-based architect designed technically challenging, visually arresting buildings around the globe. Hadid was best known for her public and institutional projects.

Very impressive designing by this late Iraqi London based architect...

David Trefler She seems like a trailblazer-- see this NYT article about the problems that female architects still face in the male-dominated field: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/04/13/arts/design/female-architects-speak-out-on-sexism-unequal-pay-and-more.html (Also http://www.nytimes.com/2016/04/01/opinion/zaha-hadid-more-than-a-female-architect.html?_r=0)

Vienna Stokes I'm studying architecture and I can confirm that it is very much still a man's world. I find it interesting that females in the article you quoted mention that it's not going to change till construction becomes a more equal sphere. I wonder if that is necessary (or realistic) but I definitely see the problem with men being used to coordinating only with other men in the workplace setting.

It was one of the most incredible nights of my life :) Also... I think about 50,000 people were there? That's about the capacity of the Metlife Stadium during a concert, and I didn't see many empty seats! I can't wait till next year, where I'm going to be on the floor, up close. (goals)

The Building

Inside the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi Visitors will enter the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi through one of the cones, covered on the exterior with panes of blue glass and defined on the interior by a dynamic structure of wooden timbers. Just off the soaring glass atrium are workshops and a 350-seat theater, where the museum will offer a wide-ranging educational and performing-arts program.

Frank Gehry has approached this design from totally different perspective.
