Is Technology the future for concrete as a game-changer of building and the architectural industry?
‘’ With the shift of technology throughout the years concrete has transformed and involved. The uses of reinforced concrete to a more recent technology 3D concrete printing. Where architects and construction engineering are using this method to explore different ways to have a more efficient way and less harmful to our environment.’’
What can we learn by comparing the traditional way of using concrete in the design, production and construction of a building
Examine and explore the shift of technology in concrete as a material in architecture
Through my investigation to examine and understand the change and the role of technology in the technical side of the use of concrete. How this transformation and influence on this material can implicate it’s logistic and the environmental impact in our world.
Analise and conduct a thorough investigation study to understand the difficulty of using this material and what benefits or gains we might have in the future to use this technology shift in how we design and plan a building.
Compare the old fashion way of precast concrete and 3D printing concrete with other materials to understand its qualities and constraints of its use.
