Spectrum - John Pawson

November 13, 2017

‘The methodology that underlies the chromatic arrangement of these images embodies underlying truths about my preferences and working methods. I am naturally drawn to tasks involving cataloguing, editing and setting in order and interested in how these processes can be made enriching experiences in their own right. I am interested in the idea of a definitive act of curation. I am excited by the challenge of identifying which rules will produce the most rigorous outcome, even as I am also alive to doubts over whether, in the circumstances, the most rigorous will necessarily equate to the best’

The beautiful new book by John Pawson is like a walk through a carefully shaded colour palette. Known, and respected, for his minimalist, neutral architecture. Spectrum is study of colours captured through the architect’s lens in 320 photos. Available through Phaidon.
