In Tom Kundig: Works, the celebrated Seattle-based architect presents eighteen new projects, from Hawaii to New York City. Kundig's award-winning houses, known for their rugged yet elegant and welcoming style, are showcased in lush photography with drawings and sketches, and appear alongside his commercial work from multistory complexes to the Tacoma Art Museum to a line of hardware (handles, door pulls, hinges, and more). In firsthand accounts, Kundig describes the projects and his design process with many personal anecdotes, making Tom Kundig: Works as much memoir as monograph.The book also includes an introduction by design journalist Pilar Viladas and three revealing conversations with the architect and his frequent collaborators: gizmologist Phil Turner (the man behind the amazing mechanical apparatuses featured in much of Kundig's work), contractor Jim Dow of Schuchart/Dow (master builder and craftsman responsible for many of the projects), and clients Shane Atchison of Studhorse and Jack Anderson of the Bigwood Residence.
  • Kundig's Houses (2006) and Houses 2 (2011) are two of our all-time bestselling architectural monographs.
  • Kundig was a 2008 recipient of a Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award and was elected to the National Academy of Arts and Letters in 2007.
  • Kundig's firm Olson Kundig was named firm of the year in 2009 by the AIA.
