Concrete is the “modern” construction material that has helped shape the fundamental static principles of structural load bearing. Similar to masonry, concrete effectively transmits pressure downward, but its weak point is tractive forces. Concrete has also enabled freer use of architectonic forms. This title imparts the basic knowledge every architect needs to master for planning reinforced and non-reinforced concrete construction.

In our expectations, concrete is always rough and grey. Therefore, how to increase its public acceptance is architects' great consideration. Many architects have tried actively; some mix concrete and other materials in a proper proportion clean concrete surface combined with carefully manufactured wood or metal makes it easier to be acceptable. The perfection and abstraction of concrete are also more influential to those who are familiar to contemporary art trend."

Office design has changed significantly over the last few years and is now one of the most innovative areas of interior design. It used to be the case that only the public spaces of an office were creatively designed, but increasingly the staff areas are seen as key reflections of the company brand as well. In more radical offices, there is also a growing belief in the importance of work areas as social spaces and a blurring of the distinction between work and recreation. This book explores in detail 42 of the best recent office design schemes, featuring projects from leading architects around the world. Each project includes photographs as well as detailed drawings and plans, where appropriate, in addition to informative text describing the design concept and process. A bonus CD contains drawings featured in the book, in both eps and dwg (generic CAD) formats.

Concrete is the building material of our time. Celebrated on the one hand, stigmatized on the other, hardly any other material combines such contradictory associations. Its vast potential cannot be overestimated. Ever new applications and possibilities make it a very popular and valuable building material today. When combined with other materials in particular, concrete displays a seemingly limitless flexibility in texture, utilization and shape. The contemporary projects from around the world presented in this volume provide impressive testimony to the many faces of concrete and the great design potential it possesses. The book features images, drawings, facts and texts that highlight the continued relevance and inimitable fascination of this unique building material.
