American architect James Timberlake, from acclaimed US practice KieranTimberlake, will present a talk about the construction methodologies his firm has devised to confront current productivity and environmental problems that undermine the building industry.

American architecture firm KieranTimberlake is internationally recognised for producing beautifully crafted buildings that are holistically integrated to site, program and people. The practice is committed to the creation of high performance buildings through the seamless integration of design with research. The firm interrogates and advances building design practices through material, system, process and environment driven questions. Over the course of multiple projects, Kieran Timberlake have employed a range of approaches to off-site fabrication, from program-volume subdivision to the articulation of entirely new systems of assembly.

An investigation of building information modeling (BIM), the supply chain and the creation of integrated component assemblies are posed as part of the firm’s solution, as well as trans-industry collaboration, cultivation of a deep environmental ethic, and assuming responsibility for the total lifecycle of a building.

To coincide with the lecture, an exhibition of selected KieranTimberlake projects will be on display at the Wunderlich Gallery, Architecture Building (23-31 August 2011).
