Topographic map of Israel

 

In a unique manufacturing process we have created a 50m² topographical map of the State of Israel.

The development process begins with computer aided design and continues with the production of lightweight concrete shells with amazing structural strength. In this project we have implemented a unique engineering structures that provide excellent strength and light weight, allowing the construction of large volumes under conditions where there's weight limits.

This innovative production process allows the production of complex shapes in large scale.
