Concrete Elegance – Texture & Context

< Return to news

We were thrilled to be invited to present the Yorkshire Sculpture Park project alongside Feilden Fowles Architects, as part of the Concrete Elegance series of talks at the Building Centre.

Another fascinating talk as part of the Concrete Elegance series, this time involving our very own Greg Nordberg alongside Feilden Fowles Architects, presenting the new Visitor Centre at Yorkshire Sculpture Park.  The concrete used to form the façade, includes a variety of pigments and aggregates which were treated to create a heavily textured surface, reminiscent of geological strata. Inside smooth cast in-situ concrete walls support an elegant saw tooth roof, with a board-marked surface.  The building will accommodate a restaurant, shop, public foyer and gallery space and is due to open in October 2018.
