A MIRACLE MATERAL

Even in downtrodden manufacturing hubs, industriousness and industry still go together. The designers and engineers behind TAKTL, which launched in 2010, have created a new ultra-high-performance concrete with an appealing, ceramic-like finish. More durable, sustainable, and affordable than the standard-grade construction material, it could change the way we make everything from light fixtures and park benches to bridges and building façades.
