A project board is a method we use to capture the flavour and feel of a developed idea that we want to share. It allows us to more fully express our solution to a question. In this tactile form, it lets viewers interact with our process of thinking and better relate to our inspirations and concept.
Often clients are inspired to physically interact with our concept and in this more personal way they relate to specific elements of the design. Ideas and materials then have significance for them and they are experience a clearer view of the approaching result.

LiTraCon, or Light Transmitting Concrete. This is a pretty amazing idea and execution by Hungarian architect Ron Losonczi.
By embedding optical glass into concrete, a full strength material that allows light transmission is achieved. It seems that even at structural thickness plenty of light is still allowed through. This is so clever and innovative, when do we get to spec it?!!!
