Architect MJ Long has worked with a remarkable list of artists, designing both their living and working space. Artists' Studios explores some of these key projects, providing a personal insight into the creative mind behind the working space of some the most highly respected artists. The studios profiled include those of Sir Peter Blake, RB Kitaj, Paul Huxley and Frank Auerbach, amongst others.
MJ Long is an architect, interior designer and a visiting critic at Yale University's School of Architecture. Since 1976, Long has designed a number of purpose-built artists' studios, each uniquely conceived with the focus on the provision of working daylight in the studio. Artists' Studios looks upon the relationship between artist and studio and the designs of Long from her perspective. The book is organised around each studio she has been involved with, detailing the conception of the project and
the specific needs of the artists.
Artists' Studios provides the reader with a unique insight into a very special collaborative practice between architect and artist, in addition to providing a glimpse into never before seen interiors of the artists' working and living environments.
