The next generation of concrete technology is changing what is possible for architecture, engineering and construction professionals. Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC), along with parametric modeling, rapid prototyping, CNC fabrication, and automated manufacturing are coming together to provide unprecedented possibilities for architectural concrete components and building skins.

Learning Objectives

  • Explain the properties and performance of Ultra High Performance Concrete
  • Describe the history of UHPC and current architectural applications
  • Examine Architectural UHPC panel and cast facade element applications
  • Outline manufacturing processes and related design-cost considerations
