Fear and Love: John Pawson / Oscar Hudson / NOWNESS / 2016


Footnotes

I often nip into places – museums and galleries – for a pee and end up getting distracted, so I liked the idea of opening the building up to the park, encouraging people to come in, exposing them to different ideas of what design is. Challenge the modern idea of design just being all about expensive stuff you can buy.

People always think it was my time in Japan that had the biggest influence on my career, but I reckon it was the bleakness of the Yorkshire countryside, the Moors, the 19th-century industrial buildings and my mother playing the organ that had the most lasting effect. ➡︎
