Product description

Concrete is the most widely-used building material in the world today. Some seven billion cubic meters of concrete are used in construction each year, more than one cubic meter per person. Concrete is stone created by human hands in which the human creative spirit is reflected together with the timelessness and serene appeal of an 'everlasting' material. This volume presents 25 contemporary buildings from all over the world in more than 300 illustrations and architectural drawings: particularly interesting examples of the interior and exterior use of concrete in construction.
