Sustainable Concrete
Switzerland, 2018

Djernes & Bell have a continued fascination with concrete as a material and are researching how this ancient yet controversial material can undergo the sustainable transformation that is necessary for it to continue as the world’s most used building material and what this will mean for concrete architecture. 

A recent study trip to Switzerland covered various insitu and precast concrete buildings including massive insulating concrete construction.

Is it Stone. Yes and No.
Is it Plaster. Yes and No.
Is it Brick or Tile. Yes and No.
Is it Cast Iron. Yes and No. Poor Concrete! Still looking for its own at the hands of man.
