Yeadon Awarded MacDowell Fellowship

Peter Yeadon (Professor, Interior Architecture) has been awarded a fellowship from The MacDowell Colony, where he will be in residence during 2017. Its mission is “to nurture the arts by offering creative individuals of the highest talent an inspiring environment in which they can produce enduring works of the imagination” and is awarded on the basis of artistic excellence.

At the Colony Yeadon will advance his work with bioplastics that emit light and he’ll place some of these elements in the landscape to biodegrade. The project intends to demonstrate a way of thinking about temporary architecture that biodegrades, perhaps even nourishes, instead of having to be demolished and removed as waste.
