concrete labor

Concrete Lattice seeks to challenge our normative association with this building typology by developing a lattice system using glass fiber-reinforced concrete, or GFRC, as the primary material. Thin lattice structures are porous, lightweight, and deployable; terms that are not typically associated with concrete architecture. The design of variable units rather than linear components, typical of lattice systems, allows the project to focus on the assembly of prefabricated units using integrated component details. By employing the use of PETG as a folded formwork, our goal was to explore the mass-customization of units to be flat-packed and deployed on site.
