Campaign for TFOB
Whenever an old building has to be demolished or its core removed, an enormous amount of demolition waste is produced. What seems like a pile of rubble, which usually ends up on our local dump sites, can actually be the beginning of a great new material story ...
Urban Terrazzo is an innovative material which transforms the remains of architectural debris into a new surface material for architecture and design. Urban waste – such as concrete, bricks and other building materials – is carefully selected and reassembled by the principles of traditional terrazzo-making, supported by contemporary technological innovation. Ultra-High-Performance Concrete gives structural stability to old remains, while grounded pigments from old bricks preserve the unique character of the former architecture.
