Light Transmitting Concrete

September 11, 2007

LiTraCon is another relatively new form of concrete, developed by Hungarian Architect Áron Losonczi. The concrete is substantially similar to Pixel Panel, but with a more organic result. Whereas the pixel panel system is formed with a grid of fiber optics, Litracon is consists of typical concrete with glass fiber optic matrices that become an aggregate in the concrete. Both of these types of translucent concrete show imagery and shadows on the other side of the wall, butthe most exciting aspect of Litracon is that its actually being fabricated and used (you can even get samples!).
