Globally acclaimed miminalist architect, John Pawson, celebrates colors through 320 inspiring photographs.

"Pawson is a lot more than just an architect; he's also handy with a camera and has a good eye for what makes a nice picture." —Monocle

Globally acclaimed architectural designer John Pawson takes you on a multi-colored journey across the world through a carefully curated sequence of 320 images. It's a celebration of color from one of the most unexpected sources. His architecture might be known for its limited color palette – primarily white – but his photographs tell another story. Pawson is always taking photographs of patterns, details, textures, and spatial arrangements that often inform his work, which includes the new Design Museum in London and Calvin Klein retail stores.

John Pawson's work focuses on ways of approaching fundamental problems of space, proportion, light, and materials. Over the years, his many residential and commercial interiors have included homes, art galleries and stores in London, Dublin, New York, Paris, Seoul, and Tokyo, and his subsequent projects have spanned a wide range of scales and building typologies, from stage sets and exhibitions to boats and monasteries.

"A book of photography by English architect John Pawson, groups his shots, taken all over the world, by color, creating compelling palettes of disparate images." —WSJ Magazine

"He may be one of our leading architectural designers, but John Pawson has an addiction: photography." —Guardian
