Architectural Buckypaper Paves Way for Buildings of the Future

Abstract:
Nanotechnology is generally pursued by scientists and those involved with high-tech gadgetry, weapons, and medical devices, but that doesn't mean it can't be applied in other fields. Recently NYC-based Decker Yeardon became the first architecture firm to synthesize a thin sheet of carbon nanotube buckypaper, and they plan on utilizing the super-strong and lightweight material in future building projects. The miraculous material is 10 times lighter and 500 times stronger than steel, it can conduct both heat and electricity, and it can filter particles.
