The ceiling of the Atwater was done on a minimal budget, and it was conceived after reviewing a number of different studies examining different materials and patterns.
Inquiry is a great read for KieranTimberlake fans and followers – it’s a celebration of the firm’s various projects ranging from residential to commercial, academic and civic buildings. It also provides insight into the architects’ thought processes and the key elements that make their buildings so sustainable. In their book, the architects document how they bring together science and art, and turn it into a physical form.
The collection of projects featured is diverse – from exhibition pieces to a K-12 LEED Platinum school, to the refurbishment of the former crypt in a 100-year-old chapel. The book offers an “inquiry” into the minds of Stephen Kieran, FAIA, and James Timberlake, FAIA, and we highly recommend that you check it out the next time you find yourself in your favorite bookstore.
