Yeadon Project Featured in Academic Paper

Peter Yeadon (Professor, Interior Architecture) was recently featured in the Institute of Physics (IOP) Materials Science and Engineering conference publication for 2017. Dr. Bogusawa Konarzewska (Gdańsk University of Technology) presented a research paper entitled, Smart Materials in Architecture: Useful Tools with Practical Applications or Fascinating Inventions for Experimental Design?, which discussed an interactive facade system prototype that was made by Yeadon. He fabricated the prototype with dielectric elastomer smart materials that can change shape and perform work, effectively behaving like artificial muscles to change the surface of facades.
