Scientists create an Ultra-Thin Concrete Roof that can generate Solar Power

Researchers from ETH Zurich have built a prototype of an ultra-thin, curved concrete roof using innovative digital design and fabrication methods. The tested novel formwork system will be used in an actual construction project for the first time next year. The self-supporting, doubly curved shell roof has multiple layers: the heating and cooling coils and…
