"The sweeping survey of buildings featured in Concrete illustrates the material's chameleonlike versatility, from the Pantheon's coffered dome to Le Corbusier's Villa Savoye." - ELLE Decor
"Yes, concrete can be cold and imposing - but as the 175 structures in [Concrete] attest, it can also be colorful, playful, and delicate." - The Wall Street Journal
"The book is a vivid reminder of the sheer endurance, unexpected delicacy, and humor of architecture's humble hero." - Architectural Digest
". . .this book isn't about the bad, it's about proving, as Leonard Koren writes in the introduction, that concrete is a noble material." - The Atlantic Monthly, Atlantic Cities blog
"The material may commonly be associated with drab, rain-stained affordable housing. But, as a new book from Phaidon proves, concrete can sing." - Fast Company
"A gorgeously bound book, Concrete offers invaluable and fascinating insight into this dynamic material and the forms it has been used to create." - Life + Times
"From the formidable fortress of Cold War-era Eastern Europe to fluid structures in South America, the uniquely adaptive materials tends to take on the emotion of its surroundings. In either design direction, however, the result is beautifully intriguing. . .a beautiful monograph from Phaidon." - Cool Hunting
