When you think of concrete, you think mundane, boring, typical and general; it’s not like we’re used to seeing brilliant concrete sculptures or concrete art of any sort, right? But, that’s not necessarily the case, as 100 Contemporary Concrete Buildings aims to show its readers.
Concrete is actually capable of prodigious feats of engineering, and this two-volume book highlights the best work involving concrete over the past few years. It’s part architecture and part art. 100 Contemporary Concrete Buildings shows the Bicentennial Civic Center of Argentina, for example, which is one of the most impressive concrete structures we’ve ever seen. The book’s pages are filled with glorious structures made of concrete that are sure to inspire awe and admiration. The book is available now for $40. [Purchase]
