obras cemex 2014 finalists

Our project, Modular System for Permeable Concrete Floor, was selected as a finalist in Obras Cemex 2014, for the special prize of Innovation in Constructive Processes and Techniques. The challenge in this project was to create a permeable concrete floor, for an existing fountain which did not drain. We designed a parametric 3D Model on which we tested different variables that helped us determine the correct diameter sizes to provide enough spacing between modules to effectively drain 100% of the water and at the same time structure the concrete to support the weight of a standard size vehicle. The system consisted of six equal concrete pieces, therefore with the use of different materials we developed a durable and flexible mold that could be assembled and disassembled several times, making only one mold for the pouring of the whole system.
