Imagine the most extreme urban environment on earth a place three times as dense as Manhattan, enveloped in a constant flow of water, beset by a relentless stream of rural migrants, plagued by annual monsoons, and threatened by climate change. A place where the very earth beneath your feet is constantly shifting from dry to wet, where categories like dry and wet in fact mean very little, since most of what exists is somewhere in between. This is Dhaka, capital city of Bangladesh. Home to 14 million. Since 2007, architects Stephen Kieran and James Timberlake have directed a design-research laboratory on Dhaka for graduate students at the University of Pennsylvania School of Design. What began as a desire to help a city in need became an immersion in investigating its ebbs and flows, mapping its urban systems, and charting its development via annual visits. The result of this extended study is Alluvium: Dhaka, Bangladesh, in the Crossroads of Water, a cross-genre book that incorporates diverse media and layers of narrative and analysis to encourage new readings and perspectives.
The book includes first-person narratives by architects and planners, documentary photographs, and maps and infographics that visually represent the intricate connections between people, water, land, and health in this delta megacity. The work proposes a new approach to understanding place that is interwoven with human interest an intimate, collaborative, research-based model that holds relevance for both the developing and developed worlds."

Architects Stephen Kieran and James Timberlake, partners of the award-winning architecture firm KieranTimberlake, break new ground with projects that explore some of today's most important topics--among them efficient construction methods, resource conservation strategies, and novel use of building materials. Kieran and Timberlake were the inaugural recipients of the Benjamin Latrobe Fellowship for architectural design research from the AIA College of Fellows in 2001. Since 2002, they have co-authored five books on architecture, including the influential book refabricating Architecture. From early adoption of building information modeling and environmental analysis tools to close collaboration with fabricators and engagement with materials scientists, Kieran and Timberlake shift expectations of the role of architect. Both lecture internationally to academic and industry audiences and to the broader public, with recent talks in London, Montreal, Puerto Rico, Rome, and Tel Aviv. They have served on several award juries, including the AIA Latrobe Prize Jury and the RIBA Stirling Prize. In addition to their architectural practice, Kieran and Timberlake teach a graduate-level design and research studio at the University of Pennsylvania School of Design. They have held visiting professorships at the University of Washington, Yale University, the University of Michigan, and Princeton University.
