Billie Faircloth, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, leads a transdisciplinary group of professionals at Kieran Timberlake, leveraging research, design, and problem-solving processes from fields as diverse as environmental management, chemical physics, materials science, and architecture. She fosters collaboration between disciplines, trades, academies, and industries in order to define a relevant problem-solving boundary for the built environment. Billie oversees the deep investigations that initiate and inform each project at KieranTimberlake. During design, she guides teams in questioning and answering through empirical experiments, prototypes, and custom analysis tools created by the research group. She participates in the development of technology to inform high-performance design, including Wireless Sensor Networks, Predictive Temperature Modeling tools, and Tally™, an application for Revit that provides accurate life-cycle data and reporting tools to designers. She is leading the development of Ideal Choice Homes, an affordable, quick-to-build housing solution for India. Billie lectures at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Design and Harvard Graduate School of Design, and is a Visiting Professor at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts.
