9780714842370: John Pawson: Themes and Projects

This study looks at the spatial themes that preoccupy John Pawson's work through a close examination of a range of different projects. It examines how light, mass and structure inform the architecture, the role of ritual and order, as well as the integration of internal and external spaces. Six projects - "When Objects Work", Calvin Klein Paris, a new factory for the watch manufacturer Vacherin Constantin in Geneva, the marketmuseum in Radcliffe near Bury, a private house in Germany and the Novy Dvur monastery - are featured, as well as eight essays by a range of different writers on the effect of the work.

Review:

"A beautiful volume and an easy introduction to his [i.e. Pawson's] work."-Modern Painters "This impressive... collection of essays on John Pawson will surely find its way onto many a designer's shelf, as both visual reference and essential welcome reading for all new recruits... The book is resolutely not a typical wide-angle brochure of Pawson's work. It instead attempts to assess the real value of architecture which celebrates texture, light, mass and ritual. What with all the recent attention given to 'minimalism', you could mistakenly believe you know all you need to about John Pawson's work. Read this book to know that there's more than the 'less is more' mantra suggests."-Theme "Characteristic of John Pawson's unique viewpoint on the junction of art and design, it also offers much wider insights into culture, society and architecture."-Property Executive "John Pawson's immaculate spaces are said to inspire religious awe, and this generously illustrated monograph adroitly recreates that impression... The book is a luscious introduction into a luxuriously empty world."-Azur
