Ultra-High Performance Concrete
Fiber-reinforced ultra-high-performance concrete (UHPC) is characterized by plasticity and durability, elevated strength in compression and ductility in tension, enhanced crack resistance, and both waterproofness and fire-resistance.
Its fabrication by casting gives the Liquid Wall an inherent form-finding capacity, capable of achieving forms both complex and dynamic. Each façade panel is an amalgam of surface, structure and architectural form.
The liquid state of poured concrete provides the designer with a degree of freedom yet unseen in unitized curtain wall design. The Liquid Wall’s use of ultra-high performance concrete reduces the required material mass by 80% relative to other precast concrete wall products.
