Description

With its virtually infinite plasticity, its constructional versatility, and its simple and straightforward building technology, concrete is one of the most prevalent building materials of today. In addition to careful design and constructional planning, the invitation of bids and the building contract are the keys to a successful implementation. Detail Practice Concrete provides the basic information needed to work with the material, with special attention to the architect's role in planning and construction management. It describes current trends in concrete technology and the development of innovative new types of concrete, with first hand reports by architects in the field. It also addresses issues of sustainability in relation to concrete. This latest addition to the Detail Practice series appears to be a worthy one.
