Reinforced.

Compressive strength and tensile steel mechanics.

A leading material in sustainable construction both in its production and recycling.
Somewhat more sustainable than Hitlers unfinished Atlantic Wall, part of which is the Marine Peilstand 3 Tower.
A true brutalist structure!

A composite material that encourages design in the mundane and functional.
As exemplified in the graceful sweeps of the Calais Port load ramps.

The Greeks on the other hand seem to prefer the economy of RC, both in design and use.
In sustainable speak they use the word “ feedstock” to describe
the process of recycling reinforced concrete.
I think the Greeks may have a lot of feedstock!
