Material and its Properties
The light transmitting concrete made by Litracon is composed of optical fibre (glass) and concrete, which is then either given a polished of brushed finish as prefabricated building blocks. This allows light to transmit through the material creating an interesting play with shadows and levels of opacity throughout the building.
Hungarian architect Aron Losonczi (inventor)
