Natural Footprint is a concrete that combines photo catalytic cement with Laser-cut Plywood. Intricate patterns of laser-cut wood embossed into concrete begin to peel off and decompose due to pollution and weathering, creating shadowy lace-like effects as they distort and bend, until they finally fall off, leaving a permanent trace in the concrete surface.
Focused on the characteristic of bioindicators, the “symbiotic relationships” between natural organisms, where one organism lives off another. This effect is translated for aesthetic architectural applications, combining organic and inorganic materials to create textured surface that change over time.
