Tom Kundig: Works.pdf
A follow up to Houses and Houses 2, Tom Kundig: Works will provide an overview of the celebrated architect's latest work. Featuring eighteen projects, the book will include sketches and drawings along with beautiful, professional photographs of Kundig's buildings. The monograph will feature a cross section of work, both residential and commercial projects--in a range of scales, from installations to multi-story complexes. Texts include an introduction and project descriptions by Kundig, an essay by Pilar Viladas, and interviews with the architect and a contractor, engineer, and client.
Manipulating and combining familiar cultural and physical material, [Kundig] makes buildings that do unfamiliar, wonderful things... This volume joins Tom Kundig: Houses (2008) as testament to an architectural original at the height of his formidable powers. --Residential Architecture
