Light-transmitting concrete

The heavy, dull substance of concrete, lit and full of life? Architects around the world are salivating over the prospect of this new material called Litracon in which thousands of optical glass fibres form a matrix and run parallel to each other between the two primary surfaces of each block. The fibres only constitute 4% of each block so they do not impede the structural integrity of the concrete, but rather contribute, forming a component of the aggregate. The inventor, Hungarian architect Áron Losonczi, claims that a wall structure could be several metres thick, as the fibres work with almost no loss of light for up to 20 metres.
