Synopsis: An insider?s glimpse into how the natural environment, energy, the economics of construction, and the processes of collaboration inform KieranTimberlake?s celebrated practice. KieranTimberlake: Inquiry comprehensively documents the beauty and relevance of KieranTimberlake?s unique and celebrated vision.

Nineteen residential, commercial, academic, and civic projects are featured here, including the firm?s own dynamic studio; buildings for such prestigious institutions as Yale University, Cornell University, and the University of Pennsylvania; and the new U.S. Embassy in London.
