Concrete in Architecture: An Exploration of Scale
Concrete has developed into one of the most important means of design in modern architecture. Capable of meeting a wide range of architectural and design applications; from providing structural function with an aesthetic finish, to decorative elements with texture and colour. No other building material can offer the versatility of concrete.
In this seminar, we will explore the different scales at which architectural design can be imagined and made in concrete. Through case studies, our expert speakers will offer expert insight into the vision and achievement of architectural concrete.
