In architecture, building beautiful curved forms has always been a goal, but to do this in concrete is complex, expensive and generates waste. Thanks to researchers from the Melbourne School of Design and an architectural engineer from Swinburne University; this won’t be the case for much longer. By using adjustable mechanical moulds for casting concrete, the team at Curvecrete have reduced the amount of waste normally created in the process.
In this exhibition, learn about Curvecrete’s innovative construction ideas and ‘negative waste architecture’ as you interact with a curved concrete pavilion. Walk away imagining a more sustainable future of architecture and construction.
Stop by the exhibition and chat with experts at the following times:
- Fri 30 and Sat 1 May: 10.30–11am and 2.30–3pm
- Sun 2 May: 11.30am – midday and 2.30-3pm
The team at Curvecrete have created an AR experience that shows you how Curvecrete is made on your phone. If you’re at Wesley Place Hub, try and align your phone to watch the app stitch to the exhibition right before your eyes: curvecrete.io
This event is part of Prototype City, a collection of experiences, tours and exhibitions that showcase innovations that will shape our future city.
