High Design, Low Impact: Residential Design Forum

How do you stay in the business of delivering high quality design in a world shaped by demand for greener homes, baby-boomer interest in downsizing, population growth and a tight real estate market? Learn why “less is more” is more relevant today than ever. By looking at alternative design solutions and the application of new technologies this forum will show you that size matters and that a simple act of restraint can address multiple problems through elegant design.

Keynote: James Timberlake, FAIA
James Timberlake is a partner at KieranTimberlake Associates, an award-winning and internationally recognized architecture firm noted for its research, innovation and inventive design. James will discuss new, more efficient ways of constructing offsite through the use of building information modeling and integrated component assemblies.
