Peter Yeadon Prix de Rome project records
The project records consist of sketchbooks, drawings, and project documentation created by architect Peter Yeadon for the Prix de Rome in Architecture, which he received in 1999. The designs were inspired by his trip to Rome and depict the life of a fictional character, Karl, who immigrates to Rome from Canada. While in Rome, this character records, designs, and builds new Roman monuments. The complete works were entitled “Karl: An Architectural Narrative."
Peter Yeadon was born in 1965 in Truro, Nova Scotia. He studied engineering (1987) at Dalhousie University, as well as environmental design (BA, 1987), architecture (MA, 1989) and completed post-graduate research (1991-1992) at the Technical University of Nova Scotia.
Prior to being awarded the Prix de Rome in 1999, Peter Yeadon received two Canada Council Arts Grants 'B' for investigative studies in the discipline of architecture (1990 and 1992). He has been honoured with awards from the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (Medal of Excellence, 1989), the Boston Society of Architects (1995), the Canadian Architect Magazine (Award of Excellence, 1995), and the Ontario Association of Architects (Honourable Mention, 1999). Yeadon also received two Canada Council travel grants (2000 and 2001). Since 2003, Yeadon has collaborated with Martina Decker as Decker Yeadon in New York City, New York.
