FABRICATION FRIDAY: BUBBLE WRAP AT ICARBONX

March 01, 2021

Steven Holl Architects first developed Bubble Wrap Concrete for the Hunters Point Library in Queens, New York; it is now being used in the construction of iCarbonX. The method is similar to the standard exposed concrete wall, but instead of a board form or steel finish, it has bubble wrap as finish. The gauge is around one inch and is glued or stapled to the form work.
