Galaxy Concrete / outdoors

Galaxy Concrete
Galaxy Concrete

Galaxy concrete is a kind of translucent concrete, which is made of GRC ( Glass Fiber Reinforced ) cement and optical fibers, through which light can pass. Instead of lasagna-like layers of concrete and optical fibers as common translucent concrete, the optical fibers are implanted in the hollow curbstone. These curbstones are designed for the outdoor wayfinding system, just like a galaxy of twinkling stars.
