DFAB House receives special mention at BETON21
Betonsuisse.
The project is a promise for the future. It shows the direction in which construction and the use of concrete could go if the possibilities of digital fabrication are increasingly exploited. The award is thus made in appreciation of the innovative use of concrete and novel concrete techniques on a 1:1 scale.
