    KieranTimberlake Firm Award

    by ArchitectureWeek

    The partners of KieranTimberlake Associates LLP approach design as a holistic process that benefits from the collective intelligence of architect, client, and others. The American Institute of Architects has selected KieranTimberlake to receive the 2008 AIA Architecture Firm Award, recognizing the firm's approach to complex challenges, its elegant buildings, its commitment to sustainable design, and its extensive research.

    "The commitment to collaborative design has resulted in a wide variety of superbly designed projects," said nominator Hubert Murray, AIA, RIBA, president of the Boston Society of Architects/AIA.

    "A long-standing commitment to and keen understanding of sustainable design in particular are among the fruits of the firm’s unusually thorough design research, a firm approach that focuses on new materials, processes, assemblies and products" continued Murray, noting that KieranTimberlake dedicates four professional staff and three percent of the firm's annual gross revenues to research.

    Murray also recognized the firm's influence, praising it as "an exemplary teaching practice."   >>>
