D+M Visiting Artist Series: Peter Yeadon

A registered architect in the US and Canada, Peter Yeadon maintains an innovative, research-based professional practice. Critics and curators have described his projects as being closely aligned with Visionary Architecture, the speculative architecture of future possibilities. Yeadon is currently researching the architectural implications of a variety of spectacular developments that are emerging from nanoscience and bio-nanoscience laboratories. He is particularly interested in the future of molecular self-assembly, self-replication and programmable matter. Yeadon’s body of built and conceptual work ranges from large institutional buildings and monuments to subatomic nanostructures. Together with Martina Decker, he recently received an award from the Boston Society of Architects for a World Trade Center memorial design proposal.
