Abstract: In recent years, recycled glass has been widely used as aggregate replacements in concrete. Owing to the aesthetic potential of the coloured recycled glass, this research aims to fully utilize this advantage for their higher end uses, such as architectural mortar. In this study, architectural white cement mortar was produced with a self consolidating method using recycled glass as the aggregate. An adequate amount of Metakaolin was incorporated into the mortar to mitigate the adverse effect of alkali-silica reaction. The results show that the self-compacting method is suitable to produce architectural mortar containing up to 100% recycled glass. Overall, the performance of all the architectural mortar mixtures in terms of both fresh and hardened properties was good.
