KIERAN TIMBERLAKE: LOBLOLLY HOUSE (USA, 2007, 27 min.)
Washington, D.C. Premiere Based in Philadelphia, the architecture firm of Kieran Timberlake is a leader of the “green” architecture movement in the U.S. As this film illustrates, its founders, Stephen Kieran and James Timberlake, have been developing innovative means to combine sustainable design principles with off-site construction for the mass customization of houses. Loblolly House, built in the Chesapeake Bay area of Maryland in 2007, serves as an example of the firm’s research-based approach. The film takes the viewer on a tour of the small, elegant Loblolly House, named for the pines indigenous to the area, and demonstrates how the architects employed an aluminum scaffold system and off-site fabricated floor and ceiling panels (called ‘smart’ cartridges) to distribute radiant heating water, ventilation and electricity throughout the house. Directed by Tom Piper. Produced by Edgar B. Howard.
Introduced by Elizabeth Wilkie, Associate Public Programs Coordinator, National Building Museum. Discussion with Susan Piedmont-Palladino, Curator, National Building Museum, follows screenings.
