Leuchtbeton / Leuchtbeton

If a city has no lights at night, how cold and dark will be the whole city! Therefore, a reinforced-concrete city must have lighting to make it warm and brilliant at night. The material concrete is used more and more in all kinds of architecture. So, we hypothesize, that if concrete will glow at night, the city will not be different? Be amazing? Be much more better?... Based on this idea, we developed the material LEUCHTBETON. It can give out light constantly for 12 hours, if it irradiates with sunshine. If this material is widely used for architecture, it is conceivable that, what a colorful and brilliant night of City we will have!
