Concrete is the world’s most used construction material. Due to its relatively easy handling, its ability to be shaped in almost any form, it has excellent strength and durability.
Current global challenges force all of us to rethink the ways we use and use up our surroundings. Preserving raw materials, saving energy, pressures on economical viable space, lead us to rethink our habits. We must challenge the traditional in order to built smarter. We must deploy the properties of concrete differently to meet our needs and challenges.
In other words, we should imaginatively reinterpret concrete as a material for constructing elements, buildings, and structures by tapping into its existing benefits from a different perspective. Our ambition is to push beyond the abundance of concrete and give the world durable structures, that are more inspiring, more considered, with less raw materials, more reusable elements, clever methods for using, re-using or not-using formwork.
During the Concrete Night we present and discuss ambitions und targets for the future of concrete in relation to global challenges and demands. A variety of short presentations will show the ambitions of the Industry, as well as upcoming production- and constructing-technologies of concrete and Examples of outstanding construction projects
On this evening we will also present the winner of the 10th Concrete Design Competition on REIMAGINE. Students of architecture, design and engineering exploit their view of the potential of concrete’s properties. These can be related to inherent material properties, its production process, and to concrete’s application in new or existing structures. They may address aesthetic desires, structural systems or fabrication methods and comment on economic realities, sustainability demands or social issues.
We cordially invite you to the Concrete Night in Kassel, where you will be part of the actual discussion on concrete.
