  Concept:   Concrete is a composite material made up of a mixture of aggregates and paste.   The aggregates are sand and gravel or crushed stone; the paste is water and Portland cement. Cement makes up around 10–15 % of concrete.   Through the hydration process, the cement and water harden and bind the aggregates into a rock-like mass.

Concept:   Old buildings in seismic-prone areas are increasingly vulnerable to earthquakes.   They are also high energy consumers due to their outdated energy designs. Existing retrofitting methods for old buildings treat structural and energy issues separately, disregarding a holistic approach.

Norwegian architect Snøhetta has pledged to only design carbon-negative buildings, meaning their projects will generate more energy than they consume over their lifetime. "For the next 10 years, we have the ambition of having projects on the table that will become CO2 negative in the cradle-to-cradle definition," said Kjetil Thorsen (co-founder of Snøhetta) "This means we have to understand the embodied energies and all the materials used."
