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.
