Concrete Architecture
Published by Phaidon

A singularly impressive volume featuring 300 examples of the most incredible and inspiring concrete architecture from the early twentieth century to the present day. Organised visually, with one building per page, Concrete Architecture celebrates the might, majesty, and sculptural beauty of concrete buildings from all over the globe and is grounded with a contextualising essay on the long history of concrete architecture, reaching back more than a thousand years to the classical civilisations of Greece and Rome.

Including buildings from the pioneering Modern masters of concrete Marcel Breuer, Le Corbusier, Louis Kahn, I. M. Pei, John Lautner, and Frank Lloyd Wright as well as work by some of the most revered architects of the late twentieth century including Tadao Ando, Steven Holl, Herzog and de Meuron, and Zaha Hadid, Concrete Architecture also brings to light the contemporary stars using concrete in spectacular ways, including Grafton Architects, Elemental, and Pezo von Elrichshausen. This awe-inspiring collection of concrete buildings from around the globe is a visual feast for lovers of Brutalism, one of the hottest topics in popular architecture.
