Concrete Canvas and Concrete Canvas Shelters

"Concrete Canvas Ltd. manufacture a ground breaking material technology called Concrete Canvas that allows concrete to be used in a completely new way. Concrete Canvas was originally developed for the award winning Concrete Canvas Shelters, a building in a bag that requires only water and air for construction."

Marcos Novak: Transarchitectures

"by 'liquid' I mean involving the total but rigorous variability and the idea that form can be driven by both data and presence, both when we are immersed in information and when information is everted on to the physical world. by 'algorithmic' I mean both created by the algorithms and subject to a self–imposed principle of minimal manual intervention. Transarchitectures. The term transArchitectures stems from a discussion between architects and designers. Influenced by their experience with computer technology during the design process they are developing new concepts of time, space, shape, structure, construction, etc. It is about simultaneously practising architecture and media, combining design and machine, and about the shift from 'form and space' to 'process and field'."
