Telling your own story:
Jim Olson and Tom Kundig have not only won every architecture award and been featured in every architecture magazine, but they’ve reshaped the way people around the world think about design. However, for these two icons what they design is only part of their story. Jim Olson and Tom Kundig wanted to tell their own story.
For Jim Olson, we set out on a worldwide mission to capture his youthful inspiration, his love affair with nature, and how all of this comes together to elevate the human/spiritual experience for those of us lucky enough to see his creations firsthand. Jim’s work is transcendent and his modest wisdom a gift we were thankful to capture for this film. The short film toured the world in advance of his most recent book, “JIM OLSON: BUILDING – NATURE – ART”
For Tom Kundig, we partnered with CNN Travel to create a slightly boozy walking tour that featured Tom’s life-filled designs spanning houses of worship, wineries, breweries, and magnificent hotels overlooking the Puget Sound. For the ruggedly handsome and cowboy sage, it was a great way for Tom to express his vision of raw materials, light, minimalist beauty, repurposed landscapes, and intuitive art blending with nature and the built environment.
Thank you for the amazing documentation of my life and work. Soulcraft’s great talent brought out the best!
