The module of the 2016 prizewinners was inaugurated today in the permanent exhibition on the Deutscher Zukunftspreis at the Deutsches Museum in Munich and is especially unique.
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Manfred Curbach, Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Dipl.-Wirt. Ing. Chokri Cherif
and Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Peter Offermann erhielten were awarded the 2016 Deutscher Zukunftspreis for Carbon Concrete - A fascinating material. Economical. Efficient. Attractive.
A composite material, carbon concrete opens up new dimensions to architects and designers in the development of intricate and lightweight structures possessing excellent structural properties. This gave rise to the idea to use carbon concrete in the building of the exhibition module. The same standards of quality and attention to detail were applied as for the other modules in the exhibition.
The final presentation made of carbon concrete is proof that this innovative material can be used to implement highly sophisticated shapes – both in design and construction.
