A follow up to the books 'Tom Kundig. Houses' and 'Tom Kundig. Houses 2', this book provides and overview of the celebrated architect's recent work, feauturing 18 projects, and includes sketches and drawings along with professional photographs of Kundig's buildings.

In Tom Kundig. Works, the celebrated Seattle-based architect presents eighteen new projects, from Hawaii to New York City. Kundigs award-winning houses, known for their rugged yet elegant and welcoming style, are showcased in lush photography with drawings and sketches, and appear alongside his commercial work from multistory complexes to the Tacoma Art Museum to a line of hardware (handles, door pulls, hinges, and more). In firsthand accounts, Kundig describes the projects and his design process with many personal anecdotes, making Tom Kundig: Works as much memoir as monograph

The book also includes an introduction by design journalist Pilar Viladas and three revealing conversations with the architect and his frequent collaborators: gizmologist Phil Turner (the man behind the amazing mechanical apparatuses featured in much of Kundigs work), contractor Jim Dow of Schuchart/Dow (master builder and craftsman responsible for many of the projects), and clients Shane Atchison of Studhorse and Jack Anderson of the Bigwood Residence.
