Yeadon Spys Urban Surveillance Interview
Peter Yeadon (Professor, Interior Architecture) was recently interviewed by theorist Felix Hoepner on the theme of expanded urban surveillance for the new edition of Moinopolis, which is an annual publication that disseminates explorations on contemporary problems by architectural theorists. The theme of this year’s edition is Observations, which “aims to approach new strategies of spatial articulation in the realm of security.”
Hoepner interviewed Yeadon about his BLISS (Better Living through Intuitive Soft Surveillance) project, which focused on how architecture might balance the public benefits of expanded surveillance via inconspicuous, non-weaponized, micro-air vehicles (MAV drones) and the desire for privacy. Yeadon’s BLISS project was also selected for the Storefront for Art & Architecture by the architects Amale Andraos, Paola Antonelli, and Michael Sorkin two years ago.
