New Monograph Tom Kundig: Working Title to be Published in May 2020
Forthcoming in May 2020, Tom Kundig: Working Title celebrates the wide-ranging portfolio of a noted American architect. Sampling 29 recent projects from around the world, this large format edition showcases the attention to innovation, materiality and craft that have characterized Tom Kundig’s career.
The monograph is introduced by journalist Mark Rozzo, and 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 29 projects that follow these narrative explorations span the globe, representing a variety of public and private work including single-family residential, hospitality, cultural and workplace, 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.
This book showcases the many different kinds of buildings – from single‑family homes to restaurants to office towers – I've had the honor of designing. I'm so grateful to all of the clients who entrusted me with the chance to work on such fantastic opportunities in diverse natural and built landscapes.Tom Kundig, FAIA, RIBA
