Pixel Panels

August 21, 2007

Translucent concrete

Developed by Bill Price, Pixel Panels are one manifestation of the broader family of products called Translucent Concrete and Transparent Concrete, all of which seek to make concrete a light-transmissive medium. Pixel Panels use concrete as a binder within which a uniform array of polymers is added to provide translucency at a given viewing distance. The ratio of concrete to polymer may be varied to allow for limitless variations (ratios as high as twenty-five percent polymer have been achieved).
