Concrete designs are often associated with something cold, dreary and hard. But in a new book by William Hall and Leonard Koren, Concrete showcases how the material can be transformed into more than just a depressing industrial building or housing foundation. Concrete takes a look into how the material has enabled some of the best architects and designers in the world to create amazing structures. From the Guggenheim Museum in New York to the Church of Light in Japan, these are just some examples of how concrete has changed design.
“Concrete is a noble material. Its development is one of humankind’s greatest achievements. It might not be up there with the discovery of fire on demand, but it is greater than the invention of plywood, perhaps even on a par with the advent of steelmaking.” — Leonard Koren
