Item description for Concrete: Design, Construction, Examples (Detail Practice) by Martin Peck...

With its virtually infinite plasticity, its constructional versatility, and its simple and straightforward building technology, concrete is the building material of the present. In addition to careful design and constructional planning, the invitation of bids and the building contract are the keys to a successful implementation. Building with Concrete provides the basic information needed to work with the material, with special attention to the architect's role in planning and construction management. It describes current trends in concrete technology and the development of innovative new types of concrete, with firsthand reports by architects in the field. It also describes the new version of the DBV/BDZ data sheet "Exposed Concrete."

Reviews - What do customers think about Concrete: Design, Construction, Examples (Detail Practice)?

Expected something else.  Jun 3, 2008
This book is produced by the creators of Detail Magazine. With this in mind I expected there to be a lot more details. It contains more of a brief history, types of concrete, different applications, and just as the title depicts, "Design Examples", with minimal construction insight or details. Most of the examples were nothing spectacularly unique as well. I would recommend this as a resource for an architecture student, but there is not much substance for the practicing architect.
