From the ancient Egyptians to the Shakers to Louis Kahn, there's always been something fascinating about the power and purity of minimalist architecture. John Pawson calls it "the excitement of empty space," and this important book displays it on every page. Pawson breaks down the elements of minimalism into mass, light, structure, ritual, landscape, order, containment, repetition, volume, essence, and expression, and his clean photographs both enliven and exemplify his principles. It's a book every architecture buff will want to study and enjoy.About the Author:
