The Concrete Surface Symposium and Workshop
February 9th - 10th, 2018
This one and a half day symposium will explore built concrete works specifically through consideration of their surface. Valued for its strength and durability, concrete has challenged and expanded the meaning and role of the architectural surface during the material’s long and evolving deployment. The symposium will explore historical approaches to the finishing and surface treatment of concrete as well as its performance, deterioration, and conservation. Of particular interest will be past and contemporary attitudes toward aging and extended service life and methods for repair.
