Future Green Studio

Research

CONCRETE PROCESS STUDIES

As part of the design process for a series of courtyards of a new Art Gallery in Bushwick, Future Green Studio designers are conducting material research by mixing aggregates and concrete to explore the process of decomposition. Material studies include:

    - Mixing concrete with gravel and asphalt to study transitions of surface textures
    - Creating concrete voids by applying de-icing salt, inserting and removing straws, 
 and introducing organic material to allow for microhabitats of moss and weeds to grow
    - Combining peat moss and perlite to concrete to accelerate the degradation process 
 and encourage plant habitation
