Tom Kundig, an owner and design principal of the architectural firm Olson Kundig that he joined in 1986, has enjoyed a lengthy and fruitful design career. To commemorate some of his most recent notable projects, Kundig’s work has been spotlighted in a new monograph, dubbed Tom Kundig: Working Title, rich with stunning imagery of structures that he designed.

Diving into Kundig’s noted care for materiality, innovation and craft, Tom Kundig: Working Title is packed with lush photographs of 29 global projects that Kundig had a hand in. These are accompanied by a forward from journalist Mark Rozzo, a dialogue with Bob Dylan Archive curator Michael Chaiken and a variety of plans and sketches that shed light on Kundig’s creative process. Ranging from the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture in Olson Kundig’s native Seattle to South Korean retailer Shinsegae International’s enormous tower to the organic Martin’s Lane Winery in British Columbia, the projects on display demonstrate Kundig’s adroit sense for application.

“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,” Kundig said in a statement. “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: Working Title is available from Princeton Architectural Press for $80 USD.

Most recently, we took a look at Olson Kundig’s striking Teton House.
