KieranTimberlake: Inquiry

James Timberlake, FAIA, is a partner of KieranTimberlake, an internationally recognized architecture firm based in Philadelphia, and recipient of numerous honors including the 2008 AIA Architecture Firm Award and 2010 Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award. By undertaking a path of research into new materials and potential technologies that alter fabrication and delivery methods and influence the way we live in our environments, KieranTimberlake tackles broad questions such as: How do we reconcile the contradictory demands for low energy and abundant natural light? How do we recover the embodied energy in a building? and How do we achieve greater quality and environmental responsibility in less time? Join James Timberlake as he discusses inquisitive approaches to clients’ needs, as well as the needs of the environment, and how that has broadened the firm’s vision of the relationship between process, craft, and form.
