James Timberlake, FAIA, is a founding partner of KieranTimberlake, an internationally recognized architecture firm based in Philadelphia and recipient of numerous honors including the 2008 AIA Architecture Firm Award and the 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? How do we achieve greater quality and environmental responsibility in less time?
In conjunction with AIA Fort Worth's annual Design Awards, the Modern invites you to join James Timberlake, this year's lead juror, as he discusses inquisitive approaches to clients' needs, as well as the needs of the environment, and how that has broadened his firm's vision of the relationship between process, craft, and form in this Tuesday Evenings presentation titled "Inquiry."
