Abstract

Sustainable design means thinking about how much control, or energy, we apply to material processes. The more control handed over to natural forces, the better. One way of achieving this is by casting concrete with fabric membranes – an alternative to traditional concrete shuttering that allows for more efficient and expressive structures.
