Cementitious structures exhibit high compression strength but suffer from inherent brittleness. Conversely, nature creates structures using mostly brittle phases that overcome the strength-toughness trade-off, mainly through internalized packaging of brittle phases with soft organic binders. Here, we develop complex architectures of cementitious materials using an inverse replica approach where a soft polymer phase emerges as an external conformal coating. Architected polymer templates aredoi:10.1016/j.isci.2021.102174 pmid:33718827 pmcid:PMC7921815 fatcat:d7ojb2xccnhkvjnmhk53xvn6b4
