Architecture: Plain Space by John Pawson at Fondazione Bisazza: “..a survey of his realized projects which support an ongoing exploration of the inhabition of minimalist spaces defined by light and mass..his designs merge principles of ritual, structure, landscape, order, containment, repetition and volume to form a minimalist architecture based upon proportion and the fall of light. by restricting the material and color palette, the resulting structure is formed with a clean composition of lines and surfaces. resisting abstract theories throughout a project’s conception, the implemented buildings are life-affirming, placing the dynamic activity which will occur inside as the priority..” The inspiring, richly minimal, almost soul-lifting, work of the internationally renowned British architect and designer..
