understanding of the influence of technology in architecture and how both together they could change the way we use the material more efficiently.
The logistics of producing the material and transportation from factory to site.
I would like to use this research to explore more and understand the transition of this material from fabrication, design to construction on site.
How is this technology reinventing the way we use and see concrete currently?
I aim to use this topic to investigate and explore how this shift in technology could influence the way we see and design in the future.
