This publication, the third in the 'Concrete Elegance' series, explores the various colours and surface consistencies of concrete. It discusses the quality and variety of colour emerging in concrete architecture using examples, such as the black concrete of the Utrecht Library, the grass-imprinted precast panels of the A16 Toll Booths in France, the pink glass reinforced concrete (GRC) panels of Villaverde in Madrid and the plain grey concrete in the Bacon Street House.The book shows that the interpretation and end results of using tried and tested concrete mixes and commonly used forming materials still offer almost limitless design freedom and scope for expression. The landscape, hardscape, parkland and playground projects and domestic artefacts reviewed in this edition help to broaden the readers understanding of concrete's potential and universal appeal.'The Concrete Elegance' series is based upon a set of lectures which showcased innovative and creative concrete architecture. Many exciting and diverse projects and products were presented by architects and designers at the lectures and this provided the inspiration for the popular series of books.
We provide complimentary e-inspection copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption.
