Minimum is a visual essay by renowned architect John Pawson, which at once expresses and embodies the ideas of reduction, simplicity, austerity and repetition. The pages reveal an extraordinary range of starkly beautiful images of architecture, engineering, ceramics, furniture, photography and art from many periods and cultures - all of which come together to encapsulate the energy of simplicity.

As Pawson explains in his introduction, these concepts find their expression in art and design, and have their beginnings in the realms of religious and philosophical convictions. The austerity of a Cistercian monastery or the simplicity of a Zen garden are both emanations of the same urge to reduce, to clarify and to liberate. Through a sequence of meticulously orchestrated pictures, this book illuminates the ways in which this mode of thinking has inspired the work of artists and architects from Ancient Egypt to contemporary Mexico or Japan.

Above all, Minimum is a work of art in its own right. Its values of design and production reinforce the philosophies of the author to create an extraordinarily sublime and desirable book.
