Dig On This

I'm not one for name dropping architects or their contributions to various movements. I know what I like when it comes to the way houses sit, but that's about the extent of my knowledge on the subject. I also know I like Tom Kundig. Having a bit of a skewed Midas touch, everything he touches seems to turn to the proverbial gold, but then quickly to a perfectly tarnished shade of rust. Throwing the spotlight on the ordinary, Tom gives life to everyday elements of living we often take for granted. Opening a door becomes an adventure and doing the dishes a game. Life how it should be lived. Pick up his book, poke around his website, get stoked, go home and start tinkering.
