John Pawson has produced a number of books to spread the word about the sweetness of pared down architecture and design. We agree that such places–when designed by someone with humanity as well as aesthetic purity, like Mr P–allow for a deeper, more rewarding experience . His book Minimum is full of such places, large and small.
