Textile reinforced concrete (in short: TRC) is a relatively new building material. It is characterized by the possibility to produce very thin layers with a high tensile strength. Due to the use of flexible reinforcement, TRC is particularly suitable for shell building. In this paper we want to give a short overview about the development of TRC in Germany and the typical material properties. Further we want to describe realized projects in the fields of new shell buildings and of strengthening of reinforced concrete shell structures. The focus is here on manufacturing methods, and we want to demonstrate the potential of textile reinforced concrete for building constructions. We close with a short outlook.
