Large format, pre-fabricated concrete elements consisting of white cement and Saxonian marble chips reflect elements that were bombed during World War II, without replicating them. The original, ruined shell is stripped of its ornamentation leaving the historic brick walls bare. Recycled, handmade bricks are used throughout the project.

“corals are the master builders of the animal kingdom. Powered on plankton and their symbiotic algae, hard corals extract the carbon dissolved in seawater and turn it into their calcium carbonate skeletons”
Calera seeks to mimic this process for concrete production. Instead of carbon from sea fauna, Calera uses carbon from flue gases. Instead of the great saltiness of the sea, Calera will use a saline solution. Electricity will be used to convert the gases into water.
