Organic concrete emerged through a series of projects in which the differentiation between natural and artificial materials became increasingly questionable. Just as in genetic manipulation, a new material was created, developed to conciliate the vegetable and the inorganic in a single element. Exploiting concrete’s capacity to retain humidity, the material functions as a battery in which the water is released during dry periods. Applied as a surface, organic concrete makes it possible to obtain permeable living surfaces, offering a natural component for public urban spaces.
