Visual Inventory is a selection of images from Pawson's personal archive. The photographs include buildings and landscapes with the texture, light and space documented and annotated by the acclaimed designer, taking the reader on a journey through different times and spaces, and finding ways of seeing the detail and beauty in everyday life.
John Pawson was born in 1949 in Yorkshire. His work focuses on ways of approaching fundamental problems of space, proportion, light and materials. His many residential and commercial interiors have included homes and art galleries and stores in London, Dublin, New York, Paris, Seoul and Tokyo, and his subsequent projects have spanned a wide range of scales and building typologies, from stage sets and exhibitions to boats and monastaries. The New York Times has called him "The father of architectural minimalism."
