Jim Olson: Art in Architecture

For over five decades, Seattle architect Jim Olson has cultivated an international following through his exploration of the relationships between art, architecture, and nature. Best known for his residences for art collectors, Olson's attention to craft and the experience of space have led to this global appeal. Drawing upon Olson's years of practice, Jim Olson: Art in Architecture reveals his many sources of inspiration and how the power of material and sensorial exploration have shaped his approach to design. Through journal sketches, personal observations, and images of built projects ranging from his own intimate cabin in Washington State to grand residences around the world, the reader gains deep insight into Olson's architecture and its artistry.
