Yeadon Project Published in Iran

Peter Yeadon (Professor, Interior Architecture) was recently featured in research presented and published by Iranian engineers at the 2nd International Conference on Advanced Research Findings in Civil Engineering, Architecture and Urban Management.

In their paper, titled رویکرد هوشمند سازی در نماهای متحرک ساختمان سازگار با محیط (An Intelligent Approach to Moving Environment-Friendly Buildings) Farnoush Namdarpour and Sah Golfshan of Isfahan University of Technology’s Faculty of Civil Engineering discuss an interactive facade system prototype that was made by Yeadon. The prototype utilized dielectric elastomer smart materials that can change shape and perform work, effectively behaving like artificial muscles to change the surface of the facade.
