Design and manufacture of translucent architecturalprecast panels

Pretecsa Mexico, COO, Estado de Mexico, 52940, Mexico

Architecture in the 21th century began as a celebration of the age of industry and technology but it rapidly changed into a new age of information and Ecology. This school project combines both stages by using industry experience, manufacturing technology, and available information to deliver an ecology efficient product. The specific “green“ requirements were to save operation costs on 12% by providing natural lighting instead of energy consumption, so it was to find a translucent walls system where light could be moved from one side of a solid surface to the other and this had to be achieved with architectural concrete precast elements.
