The School of Architecture presents a free public lecture by Billie Faircloth, partner at the firm of Kieran Timberlake. A Q&A will follow.
At Kieran Timberlake, Billie Faircloth oversees the investigations that generate and inform each project. She leads a transdisciplinary group of professionals who leverage research, design, and problem-solving processes from fields as diverse as environmental management, chemical physics, materials science, ecology, and economics. Her research explores the question of why architecture is built in the way it is and the ways in which it can improve.
In 2017 Faircloth was the recipient of Architectural Record's Women in Architecture Innovator Award. Among other projects, she is currently working on Ideal Choice Homes, an affordable, quick-to-build housing solution for India's rapidly emerging middle class.
