john pawson is an architect and designer whose exceptional work combines an essential simplicity with a keen attention to the details of everyday life and the human experience. over the last decade, the scope of his designs expanded from everyday objects and interiors to include houses, monasteries, pavilions and boats. in plain space, author alison morris presents an overview of his most recent body of work, as well earlier projects. this detailed monograph is filled with exquisite photographs, detailed drawings and thematic essays including the 40th anniversary celebration of calvin klein at new york city's high line in september 2008. john pawson also designed the calvin klein collection new york flagship. the handsome neo-classical structure was subtly transformed by the insertion of huge panels of glass which in effect turned the building into a light-filled, minimalist showcase for the designs.
