Those who have been following the work of Olson Kundig and its modern designs that often incorporate the natural landscape in which they are situated, will be pleased to learn of a new residency program that launches this year.
The Seattle-based design practice has announced its inaugural Creative Exchange Residency Program, which will award a resident a grant of $10,000 and the opportunity to collaborate with the firm’s expansive network of designers, architects, landscapers, and other practitioners for a period of two to four weeks.
In the past, Olson Kundig has partnered with artists, choreographers, writers, chefs, scientists, fashion designers, and horticulturists, and this new endeavor seeks to expand on its history of working with practitioners across a spectrum of disciplines. The program is an invitation to not only collaborate with the Olson Kundig team, but also to "impact the collective practice of the firm," as the press release notes.
Applications will be accepted here until August 1, and the resident will be announced two weeks later. In the meantime, take a tour of this enchanting 1959-bunkhouse-turned-weekend-retreat-cabin located in Longbranch, a community located on the Key Peninsula in Washington.
