Nanotechnology: Small but Mighty

Abstract:
Architects and building manufacturers are slowly bringing to market new applications that allow the positive outcomes of nanotechnology to become more visible in the built environment.

During a recent gathering at the Center for Architecture in New York--which celebrated the work of six new practices from London--there was a discussion near the bar that gradually turned toward the escalating influence of nanotechnology on textiles, industrial design, and now architecture. An exhibition of student work from 16 regional schools was still hanging in the lower gallery at the Center, and the University of Pennsylvania featured a selection of Studio Balmond projects that focused on nanotechnology. "I'm still waiting for nanotech to appear in architecture," said an expectant but skeptical archi-demic, "as, you know, as a technology for making structures."
