Tom Kundig is a Seattle-based architect with Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen whose work is inspired by both industrial structures and the vibrant craft cultures that are fostered there. His buildings uniquely meld industrial sensibilities and materials such as corten steel and concrete with an intuitive understanding of scale, from the overall site to lovingly wrought, intimate details. "Tom Kundig: Houses" presents five projects in depth, from the early conceptual sketches to final stunning details. Kundig's houses reflect a sustained and active collaborative process between designer, craftsmen, and owners. All located in Washington State, these houses not only convey the keen eye of the architect's inspiration but also the awe-inspiring backdrop of the Pacific Northwest.
