Editorial Reviews

Review

"Presents 30 startlingly minimal and gleaming white projects." -The New York Times

"It's not easy to achieve such Spartan perfection, so if you can't tell the difference between a Pawson interior and a half-empty bachelor pad, consider this required reading." -Details

Format: Hardcover
JOHN PAWSON: PLAIN SPACE packs in over 300 color illustrations of his most recent work, to coincide with a Fall exhibition of the same name. This stands well alone too, gathering the designer's body of work under one cover and featuring projects that focus on Pawson's use of space, light and materials. With its full-page displays and colorful presentations, this is a top selection for any modern arts collection.

Excellent overview of the work of a man who employs rigorous simplicity as a guiding principal in his designs, giving them a timeless quality. The book is written in an easy to read manner by a writer close to the subject. A must for those interested in good modern design.

For fans of Pawson's work this book is a bit lacking in imagery. More homes would've been nice to have had included in this compendium which features a combination of sacred, domestic, and institutional spaces. The sailboats were a bit of a waste for me, but are in keeping with Pawson's stripped down aesthetic and minimal design.

This book was given to our architect and the review from him was very enthusiatic. He felt one of Pawson' s genuis was keeping tension between what is needed and not. The spaces in this book are varied and beautiful, a must buy if you like modern design. The detailed layouts of all the projects was interesting and a nice touch.
