Aspects of concrete
The diversity of concrete
Concrete’s many aesthetic possibilities result from the combination of its constituents (grey cement, white cement, aggregate, pigments), the diversity of surface treatments (on fresh or hardened concrete) and its exceptional plasticity in the fresh state, enables it do adopt almost any possible shape.
In addition to its physical and mechanical properties, which enable it to meet constructional requirements, concrete’s appearence can be infinitely varied.
It can be moulded as desired, and can provide a multitude of textures, colours and shapes.
This choice of shapes, colours and textures gives architects and designers enormous creative and expressive freedom.
