Fascinating insight into minimalist architecture,
By A Customer
This review is from: John Pawson Works (Hardcover)
My own introduction to Pawson was a visit to the Calvin Klein store in New York, which appeared at first glance to be a store with no merchandise! However a little time spent looking around resulted in an appreciation of the architecture possibly at the expense of the clothes themselves.
The book explains admirably how the designer takes a brief and produces what are, in my mind, seriously impressive spaces. I will admit though to having some difficulty in seeing how people actually live in such an environment, do the day to day objects reappear once the camera has gone?
I would recommend this book to anyone interested in contemporary architecture and interiors, as a very readable account of the design process.
