WHAT IS A QR-CODE ?
A QR Code is a two-dimensional code, readable by mobile phones with a camera, and smartphones.
The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on white background. The information encoded can be text,
URL or other data.
QR codea are common in Japan, where it was created by Toyota subsidiary Denso-Wave in 1994,
the QR code is one of the most popular types of two-dimensional barcodes.
QR is the initialism of Quick Response, as the creator intended the code to allow its contents to be decoded at high speed.

HOW TO APPLY THE CODE?
The code is a simple graphic picture and can be printed or projected at almost any surface in small or large scale.

WHY QR CODES IN CONCRETE?
It was not obvious that the code should function on a graphically engraved concrete surface, the engraving had
to be sharp and visible enough for the mobile camera and the QR-application, so it took some laborations to find
the perfect mixture of concrete, aggregates and admixtures.

WHAT´S THE USE FOR QR IN CONCRETE ?
For an artist working with public artworks it´s quite obvious, adding a QR-code makes it possible to extend the artwork
on the web, adding films, stories, music or whatever, or simply give information about the artwork and the artist
from a web site which easily can be updated.
For an architect it´s possible to present the vision of a project and keep a dialog with the users of a building.
For the pre cast industry it makes it possible to show how a building is made which is quite unknown for the general public.
