Tour + Toast at Ortlieb's

On March 8, we hosted a Tour + Toast at our studio, the former Ortlieb's Bottling House in Northern Liberties, Philadelphia. The first in-person event of the year, we invited friends and colleagues to join us for a casual evening of art, architecture, and conversation.  
The event coincided with the 2024 Building Museums Symposium by the Mid-Atlantic Association of Museums (MAAM), where Principal Johann Mordhorst presented our decade-long master plan and renovation of the Folger Shakespeare Library, reopening to the public on June 21.

In addition to guided tours of our office and fabrication studio—a COTE Top Ten Award-winning renovation and landmark on the Historic Register—we presented a curated selection of institutional projects titled The Architect as..., which showcased our work on the James A. Michener Art Museum, the Kemper Art Museum, the Athenaeum of Philadelphia, the Folger Shakespeare Library, and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

This reception also marked the opening of the Bottling House at Ortlieb's newest exhibition, The Roundness of Memory, featuring work by Robin Cameron and Clément Masurier in conversation with Partner Stephen Kieran's micropublication Living Memorials: An Invitation for All
Thank you to everyone who attended. Stay tuned for more programming this summer and fall in celebration of KieranTimberlake's 40th anniversary.
