British architect John Pawson (born 1949) is a master of minimalism. His buildings and objects are defined by his devotion to simplicity and the art of “leaving out,” and by their purity of space, proportion, light and material. Influenced by Japanese culture and minimalist sculpture, Pawson defines his idea of the minimum as a perfection and quality that arises when every detail and connection is reduced to only that which is essential. With models, large-format photographs, material studies and objects, this publication provides an overview of Pawson’s work and demonstrates the phenomenon of “emptiness.” Among the projects presented are the Cistercian monastery Novy Dvur in Czech Republic (2004), the footbridge Sackler Crossing in London (2006), the Stone House for La Triennale di Milano (2010) and the St. Moritz church in Augsburg, currently in its planning stages.
