This book presents a selection of GUND Partnership's recent work, reflecting the firm's continuing commitment to the social and narrative power of architecture.
Beginning with a respect for the principles of site and context as form drivers, the projects seek to knit together mission and materials in new ways. Whether an urban or campus intervention or a pristine landscape, the most successful solutions are those that tie into their organizing context. At the same time, these projects acknowledge their surroundings without imitation through a commitment to human scale, as clear conception of space and its progression, and a desire to provide delight through the unexpected.
Led by founding partner Graham Gund, FAIA, the office is located in a restored courthouse in Cambridge, Massachusetts, originally designed by Charles Bulfinch. The firm is the recipient of more that 100 regional and national design awards for excellence.
