Reaching for Cloud 9 in Architectural Concrete Design.

Cloud number 9 is in fact a reference by the International Cloud Atlas. Its initial purpose included aiding the training of meteorologists and promoting more consistent use of vocabulary describing clouds, Cloud 9 being one of the hightest.  Many are familiar with the term as an expression of bliss, and may be how a design professional and craftsman feel when a concrete design comes full circle. The article that started the series, GP9 published in 2011 in Specifiers Magazine, was a foundation for the development for products that are more common in the market place today.
