Architect and designer John Pawson came to architecture relatively late, beginning his studies at the AA in his early thirties. In 1982 he established his practice, John Pawson, and began to develop his signature style, a pared-down simplicity which he has refined in a number of projects, including art galleries, domestic interiors, restaurants and shops. This lecture marks the publication of his visual essay Minimum. Pawson talks about the book, presenting an analysis of the elements of minimum: repetition, geometry, structure and proportion.
