The State Department announced on Tuesday that KieranTimberlake, a Philadelphia-based firm, has been chosen to design the new  U.S. embassy in London. They won’t have the option of retreating to the exurban frontier and holing up behind blast walls on a vast campus. The design that helped the firm win the prestigious commission looks promising.
