The projects that will be discussed are highly original in their concept and program and innovative in the way that colour has been introduced into the surface of the concrete. For the Mustakavi School in Helsinki it was by brushing metallic irons into the white precast panels to dye it a rust brown and cooper green. On the Giadan Apartment Block in Samedan colour was applied by layering concrete in the formwork, with each layer impregnated with soft earth coloured pigment to create the effect of strata.
