Manual: The Architecture of Kieran Timberlake is a monograph of the Philadelphia-based architectural practice. The book presents 29 projects from houses to schools that exemplify KieranTimberlake’s acclaimed attention to careful detailing. The illustrations consist of photographs and drawings including sketches and detail working drawings. The introduction has been written by Alberto Pérez-Gomez.
To place human values – the education and growth of future architects, life, and the human spirit – ahead of fashionable products, personal vanity, or fame is a courageous way of working, one that is fraught with dangers and that sometimes raises more questions than it is capable of answering.
