Description

Second in a series of three books, this book highlights concrete's inexhaustible possibilities for creating visually uplifting architecture. It also includes an explanation of precast sandwich panel construction used for housing developments in Helsinki and which has been exploited for a stunning office development in Arhus, Denmark.|The scope for concrete in all its forms continues to evolve and surprise. "Concrete Elegance Two" - the second in a series of three books - highlights once again the material's inexhaustible possibilities for creating visually uplifting architecture. The projects discussed in this book are varied accounts which provide an exploration of concrete's ability to recycle materials for a kitchen worktop and a house extension, plus a summary of its state of art development in casting smooth, double-storey high, board marked panels without compaction at the Lincoln City and County Museum. The book also includes an explanation of precast sandwich panel construction used extensively for housing developments in Helsinki and which has been exploited for a stunning office development in Arhus, Denmark.
