The October issue of ARCHITECT magazine included a project by Peter Yeadon (Associate Professor, Interior Architecture) and Martina Decker. Their Homeostatic Facade System project is one of six kinetic works reviewed in “Active and Alive” by Brian Libby.

Biological homeostasis—the ability to regulate internal conditions with kinetic movement (think goosebumps)—inspired the Homeostatic Façade by Decker Yeadon, in New York. The experimental, double-skin system sandwiches silver-coated elastomers that expand and contract in response to interior conditions. Shading can be localized to specific interior zones.
