Princeton Architectural Press is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Tom Kundig: Houses 2, a monograph featuring residences by the awardwinning architect and partner of Olson Kundig Architects. In 248 pages featuring 17 homes, the book demonstrates how Kundig is actively redefining the vocabulary of architecture and his commitment to the experiential nature of space – branding him as a unique figure among international practitioners. The book follows the critically acclaimed Tom Kundig: Houses, published in 2006.... The 17 featured projects are Montecito Residence, Hammer House, The Pierre, Rolling Huts, Tye River Cabin, Portland Hilltop House, Highlands House, Slaughterhouse Beach House, Studio Sitges, Gulf Islands Cabin, Laurelhurst Residence, Shadowboxx, False Bay Writer’s Cabin, Island Pool House, East Village Apartment, Chat-O Spapho, and Outpost. All seamlessly incorporate Kundig’s signature inventive details, rich materials, and stunning sites, from majestic Northwest forests to Western high deserts and New York City’s urban grid. Designed by Dung Ngo, this volume features a foreword by noted Finnish architect and critic Juhani Pallasmaa and an essay by Daniel Friedman, Dean of the University of Washington College of Built Environments. Tom Kundig: Houses 2 will be released in September 2011.
