A pioneer in smart materials in architecture, Professor Decker is a partner in Decker Yeadon, the first architecture research office to synthesize “buckypaper,” a thin sheet of carbon nanotubes. She and her partner, Peter Yeadon, are researching a range of novel, high performance materials like this for future building projects. Her work focuses on how new materials with novel properties might generate solutions to various contemporary challenges in sustainability and health and safety. In both her research and her architectural practice, she makes use of materials that are engineered at the molecular level.
