KieranTimberlake's work on Philadelphia's iconic Bulletin Building was recently featured in The Philadelphia Inquirer. Commissioned by the Brandywine Realty Trust, the project reimagines the former headquarters of the now-defunct Evening Bulletin newspaper at 30th and Market Streets in the city's booming University City neighborhood.
Since 2018, KieranTimberlake has partnered with UNICEF, GerHub, Arc'teryx, The North Face, the University of Pennsylvania, and others to reimagine the traditional Mongolian ger in order to find low-cost, high-value solutions for decreasing coal consumption and improving indoor air quality in the capital city of Ulaanbaatar.
We began by working closely with Mongolian communities to better understand how they kept their homes warm and improved their gers' thermal performance during brutal winters—the city is the world's coldest capital and regularly sees temperatures below -40 ºC. Five families allowed us to collect thermal data on their homes over the winter, providing our team with valuable insights into real-life fuel use and building performance.
