You won't find any faux-finished walls or crown moldings in the pages of the new John Pawson monograph, Plain Space (by Alison Morris; Phaidon; 75). The British architect is considered the king of minimalism, having applied his Zen aesthetic to such projects as a Czech monastery and Calvin Klein's New York City flagship store. It's not easy to achieve such spartan perfection, so if you can't tell the difference between a Pawson interior and a half-empty bachelor pad, consider this required reading.
