Let There be Light

5th October 2004

While in D.C., we took a tour of the National Building Museum, which was having an exhibit on concrete. The exhibit was surprisingly fascinating, in part because our tour guide was the curator who put it together. Near the end of the tour, he said we were going to look at examples of “the holy grail of concrete, which is, of course, transparent concrete.” Of course.

Anyway, he then showed us various examples of light-conducting concrete, of which this was my favorite.
