Interspersed throughout the text are striking full-page color photos and blueprints. Included is a list of works, but no bibliography. Sudjic is architecture critic for London's Observer.

Editorial Reviews

H. Scott Jolley
Less is definitely more to John Pawson. The über-Minimalist architect's creations include the stylish oasis that is the Cathay Pacific lounge in Hong Kong's frenzied Chek Lap Kok airport, and the austere Calvin Klein Madison Avenue flagship store in New York, where stone flooring that's worn to cashmere softness sets off precise displays of clothes. British writer Deyan Sudjic examines these and eight other elegant projects in John Pawson Works.
