The use and manufacture of concrete is evolving, with numerous new technologies, mixes and designs currently in development. This Concrete Futures event showcases innovation representing some of the major areas of focus including 3d printing, design for disassembly and alternative raw materials for achieving more circular, lower carbon solutions. 

Presenters include Shajay Bhooshan from Zaha Hadid Architects on ‘Striatus’ – a 3d printed concrete bridge designed without the need for reinforcement, mortar or steel connections, and Andy Coward, founder of Net Zero Projects and MinimassTM presenting innovative 3D printed concrete structural beams.

The evening’s talks and panel discussion will be followed by awards to the winners of The Concrete Centre’s Design and Sustainability Competition for students of architecture and the built environment and networking over drinks.
