Publisher : Phaidon
New October 2019
A powerful new monograph showcasing the defining elements and architectural anatomy at the very heart of Pawson's work
This monograph, the latest volume in Phaidon's documentation of John Pawson's stellar career, hones in on the essential details that mark his distinctive architectural and aesthetic style. It groups a selection of his recent works into domestic projects, including his own house in rural England; extended sacred spaces; and repurposed structures, such as London's Design Museum. Throughout its pages, this book explores Pawson's unique approach to proportion and light and his precise language of windows, doors, and walls.
Alison Morris is a writer specializing in architecture and design. She joined the Pawson team in 1998, and has remained close to the heart of the architectural process ever since. She is the author of Phaidon's John Pawson: Plain Space.
John Pawson CBE was born in 1949 in Yorkshire. His many residential and commercial projects span a wide range of scales and building typologies, from private homes to art galleries.
