A visual Inventory by John Pawson( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Pawson's career as an architect and designer spans a variety of sizes and programmes: from bowls to bridges, and monasteries to Calvin Klein stores. In addition to his acclaimed design work, he is the author of Phaidon's successful 'Minimum', a book that paired images and captions to illustrate the notion of simplicity in a beautiful and inspirational manner. 'Visual Inventory' presents some of the images from Pawson's personal collection of over 200,000 digital snapshots. The book opens with an essay explaining the importance of photography as a tool for Pawson's work, and the images are set one per page with illuminating captions. Covering a huge range of subjects, the photographs form a remarkable body of reference material. Some of the images illustrate a particular idea about form, material or space; others reflects the author's interest in returning repeatedly to certain subjects, capturing the changes brought by different weather, light conditions, seasons and patterns of use. Each image has been chosen for the book because it is useful, offering a lesson in visual thinking. None of the photographs in the book have been cropped or altered; it is the selection, arrangement and captioning of the images that make this book unique, valuable and attractive to any architect, designer, artist or student who wants to see the world around them with a stronger eye

"The diversity of Wayne McGregor's astonishing talent is demonstrated through Chroma, Infra and Limen, each created for The Royal Ballet, for whom he is resident choreographer. Intimate yet universal, light yet dark, frenetic yet lyrical, McGregor pursues his passion for exploring the inner workings of the human body and mind, his many-layered and beautiful dances providing visual, sensual and kinaesthetic stimulus for the viewer"--Original container

John Pawson : plain space by Alison Morris( Book )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Pawson (b.1949) is an architect and designer whose exceptional work combines an essential simplicity with a keen attention to the details of everyday life and human experience. In the last decade, the scope of his designs has broadened from objects and interiors to include houses, monasteries, pavilions and boats. This change in scale has given his office the opportunity to refine its minimalist aesthetic and further develop its ideas of a fundamental architecture based on the qualities of space, proportion, light and materials. In Plain Space, author Alison Morris presents both this recent body of work and earlier projects from the perspective of someone who has had unique access to the work and archives of the office. In thematic essays and narrative project descriptions she examines the firm's working processes, relationship with clients, and approach to design. Filled with exquisite photographs and detailed drawings, Plain Space will be the next must-have book for fans of John Pawson and a perfect introduction to his work for anyone interested in the absolute best of contemporary design

2 editions published in 2012 in German and English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Pawson is a master of minimalism. The buildings and objects of this internationally renowned British architect are characterised by his art of 'leaving out' - they fascinate with their pure effects of space, proportion, light and material. Influenced by Japanese culture and minimalist art, Pawson defines his idea of the minimum as perfection and quality that arises when every detail and every connection is reduced to that which is essential. With models, large-format photographs, material studies and objects, this publication provides an overview of John Pawson's work and demonstrates the phenomenon of 'emptiness'. This book presents, amongst others, his own house in London (1999), the Cistercian monastery Novy Dvur in the Czech Republic (2004), the footbridge Sackler Crossing in Kew Gardens, London (2006), and the Stone House for La Triennale di Milano (2010). Published as part of the exhibition John Pawson held in the Architekturmuseum der TU München at Pinakothek der Moderne, 1 May 2012 - 20 May 2012
