Peter Yeadon (Professor, Interior Architecture) recently delivered a lecture at the Royal College of Art in London. His presentation, entitled Nanovation: a new architectural problem focused on challenges that smart materials and nanomaterials present to those engaged in innovation. Yeadon posited a future trajectory for nanomaterials in architecture by using architecture’s own history of materials advancements, from stone and cast iron, through reinforced concrete and contemporary composites. The lecture was followed by a discussion on the implications of nanotech.
