Okay so concrete is a little dry but flexible architecture isn’t and who knows what the future of flexible concrete could bring to interactive architecture
A new type of fiber-reinforced bendable concrete will be used by University of Michigan scientists for the first time.
The new concrete looks like regular concrete, but is 500 times more resistant to cracking and 40 percent lighter in weight. Tiny fibers that comprise about 2 percent of the mixture’s volume partly account for its performance. Also, the materials in the concrete itself are designed for maximum flexibility. Because of its long life, the Engineered Cement Composites (ECC) are expected to cost less in the long run, as well.
