Liquid Stone: New Architecture in Concrete

Produced at a price of five billion cubic yards according to 12 months, concrete is the second one most generally fed on substance on the earth, after water. it really is ubiquitous and simply taken without any consideration because the stuff of sidewalks and roads, energy crops and parking garages. Concrete can also be, even if, a well-liked fabric of state of the art architects and engineers, who worth not just its versatility and energy yet its limitless power for creative expression.
