Tom Kundig: Working Title
Princeton Architectural Press | 2020/06
“...celebrates the site-responsive approach Kundig has polished over his three-decade career in residential, commercial, and public projects.”
Architect Tom Kundig’s work, which draws heavily on context and place, both urban and rural, is evidence of his longstanding interest in the ways people interact with built and natural environments. This keen sensitivity has been honed throughout his extensive career designing private residences, but it is just as present in his larger scale work. Sampling 29 recent projects from around the world, this large-format fourth monograph showcases Kundig’s signature attention to innovation, materiality and craft.
Introduced by journalist Mark Rozzo, Tom Kundig: Working Title also features Tom’s University of Washington Distinguished Alumni Award acceptance speech and a conversation with Michael Chaiken, Curator of the Bob Dylan Archive. The projects that follow these narrative explorations span the globe, representing a variety of public and private work including residences, hospitality projects, cultural spaces and workplaces, presented through stunning full-color photographs, plans and sketches. Featured projects include houses in the United States, Australia, Costa Rica, Brazil and Switzerland; cultural facilities like the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture in Seattle, WA; Austin restaurant, Comedor; Martin’s Lane Winery in British Columbia, Canada (cover image); and a high-performance tower for South Korean retailer Shinsegae International, among others.
