BrightWall targets the development of a completely new building material – translucent concrete – in the form of a sandwich panel, which has high architectural and aesthetic potential and also meets important considerations for both energy efficiency and indoor climate. The project development will ensure that the final solution combines high strength with precisely embedded optical fibres, has good thermal properties, and can be used both in façades and in load bearing applications. The primary application of the new material is to build daylight-transferring exterior walls in new buildings and renovations. Besides the impact in terms of lighting costs and emission savings, the use of this material enables the supply of high-quality natural light to buildings, which is proven to positively affect individual health.
This video shows the production and installation of the first BrightWall prototype installed at the Energy Flex Office at the Danish Technological Institute.
