Tom Kundig wins Design Museum Architecture Award

The Architect Tom Kundig from Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen, Seattle wins the Smithsonian's Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum Architecture Award for 2008. The Architecture Design Award, recognizing work in commercial, public or residential architecture.

Kundig’s projects seamlessly integrate architecture and landscape, and pay uniquely meticulous attention to detail and the materials used, which are often left in their natural, raw state. He uses art, craft, and materials to connect with the landscape, and he creates serene places for contemplation and repose. His ingenuity lies in the experiential nature of his work, the use of kinetic architectural features, and the reinvention of structural elements that are often overlooked, such as doors, windows and stairs. Kundig has garnered recognition for projects ranging from small cabins to high-rises across the American West and throughout North America. The winners of the 2008 National Design Awards will be honored at a gala dinner on October 23 at the Smithsonian’s Cooper Hewitt, National Design Museum as part of the third annual National Design Week.
