Addressing current issues related to the creation of tall concrete structures , Cast Thicket by yo_cy seeks to refine the typically heavy system of construction . The project proposes three refinements to the site-cast concrete frame , replacing the steel frame and rebar with a prefabricated internal steel frame; replacing the the solid shears walls with a network of struts .

Through the use of lightweight formwork and a redundant structural system , and by leevraging the fluid materiality of concrete , Cast Thicket work addresses current issues in creating tall concrete structures and seeks to refine the typically system of construction.
