Concrete has been transfigured from the object of mass production at twentieth century to advancing technology of building a new formation of contemporary architectural design. Concrete has evolved in ranging aggregate particles, to push the boundary the concept of reinforcing concrete with high-performance quality the thinness or elasticity. There are several conditions of concrete construction based on assembling this material towards architectural buildings. In the architectural practice, the issue of structure underlines the combination of concrete system which resists the tensile strength. Concrete also reflects on surfaces of architectural elements and potentially reshaped as a vehicle for sculptural form. Mixed concrete is a preliminary idea of mixing concrete composition with other materials such as gravel, ceramic and plastic which then discovers different form or texture. The forms of expression which have emerged alongside the technical developments reflect aesthetic value with various surfaces. This exploration is a part of learning activities in building technology class which aims at directing students to utilize concrete through mixing technique. It is developed in order to create a sustainability process of concrete and discuss the possibilities of future environmental impact by using concrete. Reshaping the visible face of concrete reveals the astonishing achievement of architecture.
