"Concrete may call to mind city blocks and parking lots, but lately the material has been going into a range of architectural masterpieces around the world. In a new two-volume set, 100 Contemporary Concrete Buildings, writer Philip Jodidio reveals how the material has become the stuff of high design..." "... A well-deserved homage to the so called `liquid stone'." "100 Contemporary Concrete Buildings, produced in TASCHEN's lavish and professional style - and oh so large and heavy, feels as if it's made of the material. Split into two giant coffee-table hardbacks, it features a chunky section on each of the buildings starting with a fact-heavy architect bio, a brief write-up about the building and several pages of beautifully shot, well-captioned photos, plus architectural drawings. For those people who still need convincing that concrete can indeed be beautiful, 100 Contemporary Concrete Buildings might just do the trick." "A fundamental reference for intellectual trends and developments in 21st century architecture."Reseña del editor:
Concrete? That characterless stuff of parking lots or Communist tower blocks, right? Well, yes. And no. Concrete is actually a name applied to a remarkably wide range of building substances, and, when properly handled, is one of the noble materials of contemporary architecture. A kind of "liquid stone" at the outset, it is malleable, durable, and capable of prodigious feats of engineering.This Bibliotheca Universalis edition highlights the best work done in concrete of recent years. It includes such stars as Zaha Hadid, Herzog & de Meuron, and Steven Holl, but also surprising new architects like the Russians SPEECH, rising stars of the international scene like Rudy Ricciotti from France, and artists such as James Turrell, who turned the famous concrete spiral of Frank Lloyd Wright's Guggenheim in New York into the setting of one of his most remarkable pieces.
