Plastic Surgery

Even the Hayward Gallery on the South Bank might feel in need of a face peel after 50 years. And during the two-year restoration by architect FCB Studios, that’s exactly what it got. Charged with the restoration of the internal architectural concrete elements of the famously brutalist building, specialist contractor Cemplas looked to Remmers’ very arty sounding ‘Arte Mundit’. It’s a self-vulcanising cleaning paste that dries into a peelable natural latex that lifts all the ingrained residues away without either dust or the use of water. Because you’re worth it!
