DESCRIPTION

"Tom Kundig is an owner and design principal at Olson Kundig — a Seattle based design practice founded on the ideas that buildings can serve as a bridge between nature, culture and people, and that inspiring surroundings have a positive effect on people’s lives.

He joined the firm in 1986, and has steadily diversified his range of project typologies from residential work to museums, wineries, high-rise multi-unit structures and hotels. The geographic diversity of his projects has broadened just as much over the years, but no matter where he works the landscape inevitably looms large, as do a consistent array of concerns related to site, scale, materials, and livability. Tom favors materials that are appropriate to the particular context of the building, generally opting for the tough and the rustic for their ability to evoke nature and weather over time, helping the building recede into the landscape.”  olsonkundig.com
