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 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 Universitys School of Architecture. Since 1976, MJ Long has designed a number of purpose-built artists studios. They are uniquely designed as the artists are all very different individuals, 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 MJ 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.
