Item description for Exploring Concrete Architecture: Tone, Texture, Form by David Bennett...

In recent years concrete has re-emerged as a prime building material, highly rated amongst architects - in particular the younger generation - because of its sculptural qualities and range of textures. There have been great advances in the material itself, with many varieties, textures and colours of concrete now available. This book provides a systematic overview of concrete's applications, illustrated by an inspiring selection of some 25 significant international projects, including David Chipperfield's Rowing Museum in Henley-on-Thames, Ben van Berkel's Moebius House, Carme Pinos & Enric Miralles' school building in Morella and Sir Norman Foster's Social Science Centre in Oxford. David Bennett is a trained civil engineer and practising architect based near London. He is a consultant in the field of concrete building and author of many publications on architecture and construction.

Reviews - What do customers think about Exploring Concrete Architecture: Tone, Texture, Form?

Thin Slump!  Nov 27, 2002
If your a fan of Frank Lloyd Wright, Sarah Susanka, and Malcolm Wells then this overpriced book will disappoint you. It shows a bunch (22) of cold, lifeless modern concrete buildings. For me books put out by the Portland Cement Association are much better at a fraction of the cost. If your into Concrete Architecture then add it to your library only if you can pick it up somewhere for 1/4 it's price.
