Summary
Translucent concrete, also known as transparent concrete or light-transmitting concrete, is achieved by adding transparent alternative materials such as optical fibers and resins into cement and aggregates.It was a new concept first introduced by Hungarian architect Aron Losonzi in 2001.

Light transmission through this material not only adds artistic effects to buildings, but also provides other benefits such as energy saving, environmental protection and ability to monitor the internal structure.

Today, translucent concrete is still not widely used in the building and construction industry due to its disadvantages such as high price and low strength. However, several important trends will reduce these disadvantages and provide strong driving forces to boost the translucent concrete market in the following decades.
