Tom Kundig comes east for a talk and sell-out book-signing event

Seattle-based architect Tom Kundig, of Olson Kundig Architects was in New York last week to talk with Town and Country Editor, Mark Rosso, about “the role of place, nature, materials and craft” in his signature, award-winning designs.  Over 100 people attended the event, which was held at the New York Public Library.  Afterwards, Kundig signed copies of his new book, Tom Kundig: Houses 2, for an eager and patient crowd.   Published by Princeton Architectural Press (PA Press), Tom Kundig: Houses 2 is a sequel to the architect’s first and monograph, Tom Kundig: Houses.   It features 17 stunning houses ranging from a 500 square foot cabin in the woods to a house built out of solid rock.  I tried to get my hands on a copy of the book but it was sold out at the event.  PA Press representatives assured me that it will be restocked soon.  The popularity of the event and the book suggests that the public continues to be fascinated with the work of this architect.   Tom will be sitting on the jury panel for WAN’s House of the Year Award 2011 and was a past winner of the award himself with The Pierre, which graces the cover of Tom Kundig: Houses 2.
