Philadelphia-based architecture firm KieranTimberlake has received worldwide recognition for their expertise in education, government, arts and culture, civic and residential projects. This past November, they released their new monograph Fullness, a two-volume set showcasing seventeen completed works over the last decade.
From houses, large and small campus buildings, a park and transit hub, and an embassy, the first volume — All In — presents photographs of each project, depicting the visual whole of the architecture as a fully resolved work. The second volume— In All —reveals the sum of its parts—the pivotal junctures that give rise to final form, including both moments of discovery and pragmatic tools of analysis, prototyping, and communication. Fullness features works such as Cellophane House at the Museum of Modern Art; the major renovation of Dilworth Park in Philadelphia’s Center City; High Horse Ranch, a private residence with three structures located in the hilltops of Northern California; and the U.S. Embassy in London.
Since 1984, KieranTimberlake has been committed to pursuing ideas that push the practice of architecture forward. The firm has received hundreds of design accolades, including the Firm Award from the American Institute of Architects (2008) and the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award for Architecture from the Smithsonian Institution (2010).
