Yeadon lectures at AIA NY Center for Architecture

Peter Yeadon (Professor, Interior Architecture) will give a lecture at the Center for Architecture in Manhattan on Tuesday 9 September, 6:00 – 8:00 PM. This presentation, titled “Substance Abuse: Various Exotic States of Manipulated Matter,” has been organized by the Technology Committee of the American Institute of Architects New York.

In his talk, Peter will provide architects and designers with an introduction to nanotechnology, by discussing some of the products of nanotechnology that have been used in the built environment. He will also focus on advanced materials that are being exploited by other design disciplines — these are technologies that are poised for application in architecture — and he will share some recent materials research that focuses on energy, water, health, and environmental issues. The presentation will conclude with new material discoveries and molecular machines that offer designers a future of promise and problems.
