Where is the concrete architecture heading? And in which way should the technology be developed in order to bring the concrete architecture up front? These and other questions have been asked and answered in this Nordic report. The project's main goal was to promote continued innovation in the Nordic concrete architecture.

The overall objective of the project is to carry on the innovation of the Nordic concrete architecture by screening the possibilities to manufacture singular concrete structures in a competitive cost frame.

This involves focus on the usage of high-technology solutions and automation in the global concrete industry in connection to manufacturing of singular concrete structures. These areas will be analyzed through a state-of-the-art research and through tests of new technologies that makes it possible to industrialize the manufacturing of singular concrete structures.

Furthermore, the project makes a hypothesis regarding future concrete architecture. This involves answers to the question: Where is the concrete architecture heading? And in which way should the technology be developed in order to bring the concrete architecture up front?
