Yeadon lectures at UMN
Peter Yeadon (Associate Professor, Interior Architecture) recently returned from the University of Minnesota, where he delivered a lecture on biosensors and biomimetic smart materials, titled “Sense and Semblance.”
Yeadon was at UMN with Martina Decker, Assistant Professor of Architecture at NJIT, to participate in the annual “Architecture as Catalyst” event. Each spring, Catalyst week offers the potential for a rigorous, immersive, transformative and creative break for architecture students and faculty during the semester. Workshops are led by a governing faculty who hosts an outside guest recognized as a leader within their field or specialty. Together, the instructors collaborate to meet the primary goal of catalyst: to expose students to themes and skill-sets which may not be addressed in the regular studio sequence. Each guest also delivers a lecture during the week, open to the design community. Decker and Yeadon ran a workshop that focused on architectural applications for smart materials.
