In Tom Kundig: Works, the celebrated Seattle-based architect presents nineteen 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 editor Pilar Viladas and in-depth conversations with Kundig's frequent collaborators-"gizmologist" Phil Turner and contractor Jim Dow (Schuchart/ Dow)-and clients (Bigwood Residence and Studhorse).

MEDIA REVIEWS
..".his latest book, "Tom Kundig Works" shows that he always starts with the idea of intimacy. No matter what size they are, his buildings are comfortably scaled shelters from which to enjoy the spectacle of nature, even if it's only urban greenery." - Wall Street Journal
"Tom Kundig: Works unveils 19 of the architect's striking, angular private residences, commercial spaces, and public buildings. Each pairs raw, rugged exteriors with inviting interior spaces that champion simplicity, comfort, and warmth." - Elle Decor
"Filled with dozens of sketches, renderings and lavish full-page photographs, the book follows two previous volumes celebrating Kundig's houses, both among the publisher's best-selling titles of all time." - Rhapsody Magazine
"Works is the latest tome on Kundig's quietly prolific output, a portfolio of relatively modest but undeniably spectacular homes that exploit the topography, views and atmosphere of their sites down to every last detail." - Wallpaper*
"The sense of quiet, warmth and tranquillity in the projects in Works, from the Studhorse residence in Winthrop, Washington to the Pole Pass Cabin on Washington's Orcas Island and an Upper East Side residence, all speak to the Kundig's unique style of modern architecture." - The Vancouver Sun
."make sure to check out Tom Kundig: Works, a beautiful coffee table book out now. Your living room ambiance will thank you." - Airows.com
"Works incorporates the architect's personal observations about his projects alongside conversations with frequent collaborators and clients (including thoughts from Olson Kundig's resident-gizmologist Phil Turner), creating a holistic and intimate portrait of his working process. The book offers not only gorgeous studies of Kundig's signature details and integration with natural landscapes, but also a record of his refreshingly straightforward voice." - Archinect
"The book is beautifully designed and produced: a match for its content, and a joy to browse." - Form
..".the book is as autobiographical and informative as it is beautiful." -- Uncrate
