John Pawson: An Architect’s Inspirations

This event has finished Took place on: Tuesday, 28th Nov 2017

Pawson has dedicated his career to exploring and challenging contemporary architectural practices. Celebrated for his minimalist aesthetic, his work is known for its simplicity in form and primarily white colour palette. Yet, his photography tells another story, one of endless colour.

Taking the reader on a multi-coloured journey across the world, through a carefully curated sequence of images, Spectrum highlights the patterns, details, textures, and spatial arrangements that can inspire Pawson’s work.

Taken on a digital camera or an iPhone, each photograph represents either a fragment of narrative from individual projects, far-flung travels or a moment that caught his eye in the course of an ordinary day.

This exclusive talk will amaze even devoted fans of Pawson and his acclaimed architectural portfolio.

Cost: £10
