In "Concrete Architecture" journalist Catherine Croft describes the history and development of concrete as a bulding material. Her book highlites the best uses of concrete in homes, business, civic buildings and landscape architecture in the past decade. The photographs are inspirational and her writing is clear and on point. For the forseeable future, concrete will continue to be the dominant building material of our times. It is important for architects and patrons to see how this material is used in the hands of talented architects.
