Description

This book is an informative, inspirational, and highly-illustrated introduction to the design potential of concrete and its vital role in contemporary architecture. It mixes key issues such as design, aesthetics, and sustainability with useful technical content, from guides to the basic principles (such as column sizes, slab thickness and types) to how to achieve many different concrete finishes.

Looking at striking examples of the uses of concrete, this new title illustrates how concrete has been used to best effect in both contemporary and classical buildings, from the Pantheon in Rome to those designed by architects such as Le Corbusier and Zaha Hadid.

Concrete: a studio design guide is an inspiring and accessible read. It will serve as an introduction to students and junior practicing architects as well as acting as a handy reference guide for more senior architects.
