Building Anti-fragility into the works of man. (Thought fragment)

1 Nov

I notice that the elements and the stress of use take a toll on the function and aesthetics of buildings and the tools that we use day to day over time. What if instead of being detrimental to beauty the exposure of the building or clothing or item to the stress of use and the elements actually enhance and improve the beauty and the utility(Which exists in inseparable unity) of the item or of any of the constructions of man.

What if for example exposure to rain and sun makes concrete look better and more stronger as a result? As well as other examples one can think of.
