Living Concrete

Award: Shortlist

Shortlist / Future Impact / Design / Emerging Talent / 2023

Living Concrete investigates self-healing ceramic aggregate concrete, which is designed to improve concrete longevity by enabling autonomous repair. Incorporating biosafety level one, bacteria releases calcite that mends cracks and enhances durability. Ceramic aggregate, derived from repurposed ceramics, transforms it into a potential biomaterial. This innovative material offers a sustainable alternative to conventional concrete, potentially reducing cement production – a major contributor to pollution.
