Abstract: Concrete identity: Exploring the potential of the sculptural expression of concrete in the work of Bekkering Adams Architects The properties of the material concrete are unique. It can be used in a variety of applications that can give architectural design a sculptural expression, balancing between sculpture and architecture. The technique of pouring the material in moulds in a variety of shapes, colours and patterns makes it possible to look for a specific expression in architecture that fits the requirements of the assignment: function, identity and atmosphere. At Bekkering Adams Architects we look for a strong and powerful materiality, and concrete – applied in different ways – is a leading theme in our designs. This article focuses on how concrete can be used in an innovative and sculptural manner in architecture and how the possibilities of the material are examined and tested to obtain optimal expression and develop our own architectural signature
