The Shape of Things To Come magazine

Publisher:MPA The Concrete Centre

Concrete provides non-combustible structures for our homes, schools, hospitals and offices, and the thermal mass to cool them in warmer summers without energy-intensive cooling systems. This publication looks at the 'shape of things to come' with concrete as innovators are reformulating cement to be less energy-intensive or replacing it completely, devising alternatives to fine aggregate such as waste plastic and inventing new types of reinforcement that can bend, be 3D-printed in fibre form or even transmit light.
