Item description for Concrete Architecture: Design and Construction by Burkhard Frohlich...

Approximately half of the new buildings today are made from concrete - it can be shaped, it is long-lasting and it is economical. Yet to work successfully with the material concrete the architect requires considerable technical expertise and experience. In this book some 12 European projects are presented, illustrating the wide spectrum of applications for concrete in construction and proving that concrete is more than just a functional material which depending on the composition and processing can fulfil the most diverse requirements. Examples such as the Art Museum Liechtenstein by Meinrad Morger + Heisi Degelo, and the Museum PasquArt by Diener & Diener prove concrete can also fulfil aesthetic demands. Full details, plans and colour illustrations are provided. The final part of the book includes detailed practical information on using and manufacturing concrete, new applications and the composition of the material. An index completes the volume.

Reviews - What do customers think about Concrete Architecture: Design and Construction?

Look elsewhere  Jan 31, 2006
The writing, in translation, is impenetrable and the coverage of each project is too limited. While I do not agree with the reviewer who called these projects ugly as sin, each seemed undistinguished.

Two more interesting books on the same subject are: Exploring Concrete Architecture by David Bennett, published by the same press, and Concrete Architecture by Catherine Croft, published by Gibson Smith.
Ugly, but interesting reading.  Jan 18, 2004
99% of the European structures in this book are as ugly as sin. If it where not for some of the interesting reading I would have only given this book only 2 stars. Being a European book it does give us a look at some technology that is not being used here in North America, and that quite frankly is all I liked about this book.
