Folger Shakespeare Library Announces New Addition

The Folger Shakespeare Library’s underground addition will welcome visitors with a new garden and universally accessible entrances.

The Folger Shakespeare Library recently announced its partnership with KieranTimberlake to renovate and expand its historic, Paul Cret-designed building. The project is part of a comprehensive master plan that will transform the Library's facilities for a new, broader, and more diverse audience.  
 
The expansion will revive the building and grounds with new and renovated exhibition and education spaces and universally accessible main entries, lobbies, and visitor amenities, as well as improved circulation. Many of the interior updates will be housed in the underground addition located beneath the Library's signature raised terrace along East Capitol street. To either side of this addition, new gardens designed by landscape architect OLIN will welcome visitors and serve as a park-like amenity.  
 
More information about this project is available in The Washington Post.

KieranTimberlake is pleased to announce that three new projects have been honored with design awards by the American Institute of Architects, Autodesk, and the World Architecture Festival.  
 
High Horse Ranch, an off-site fabricated private residence in California's Mendocino County, won the Villa category at the World Architecture Festival in Amsterdam. It was also honored with Merit Awards from the AIA Philadelphia and the AIA California Council, as well as an Honor Award from the AIA Pennsylvania. Jurors were drawn to the way the ranch's main house and two guest cabins were carefully placed and designed to highlight their stunning natural surroundings. “The project is nestled seamlessly into the site and takes maximum advantage of the views,” the AIA Pennsylvania jury noted, adding that “the use of modular construction in such a remote location was captivating.”

This past year, KieranTimberlake partnered with local hunger relief organization Philabundance to develop an app, called CAN-opy, that generated awareness and donations through a game that challenges users to create a balanced meal with just $5.20. In total we've raised over $10,000, but we want you to help us raise even more. Starting today, if you play our game and donate, KieranTimberlake will match your gift, up to $25,000.  
 
Let's make 2017 the Year to Give!

This past December, a new documentary examining the work of late architectural legend Eero Saarinen aired in the American Masters series on PBS. KieranTimberlake was proud to sponsor the production of this exciting film. Eero Saarinen: The Architect Who Saw the Future examines some of Saarinen's most iconic work, including the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, the TWA Terminal in New York City, and the David S. Ingalls Rink in New Haven. Having completed the renovation and expansion of Morse and Ezra Stiles Colleges which were among Saarinen's last works, KieranTimberlake is doubly inspired by this film.
