Loblolly House book (and DVD!)

Another new book: info_smallKieranTimberlake Associates principles Stephen Kieran and James Timberlake profile the design and construction of their info_smallLoblolly House in a volume released in June:

Through the use of state-of-the-art building information modeling (BIM), the architects were able to streamline the design-build process. Thousands of parts were collapsed and integrated into a few dozen panels and blocks that slid into an aluminum frame set on wooden pylons. Consisting of 70 percent prefabricated components, the kit-of-parts house was assembled (mostly with a wrench) and lifted into place on-site in less than six weeks.

The Dwell blog approves:

... handsomely documents the entire design-build process of the Loblolly House.... I dare say this book should be required reading for all architects, contractors, and developers.

Also worth noting:

The book includes a DVD of the film "A House in the Trees" by producers Rick Deppe and Kathleen Blake, a real-time documentary of the design, fabrication, and assembly of Loblolly House.

The list price of $40.00 is reduced to $26.40 at Amazon.
