Printing Details

First UK edition. Hardback in dustwrapper. 29 × 23cm, 202pp.

This book combines a technical and pictorial account of some of the outstanding work done in visual concrete all over the world since the beginning of the twentieth century, with an essay exploring the aesthetic and intellectual possibilities of the new material and a chapter by a distinguished practising architect discussing the many technical problems which arise in its use. Many remarkable photographs illustrate a hundred notable structures, from Frank Lloyd Wright's pioneering Unity Temple of 1906 to some recent work in the British Isles.

Condition

The book is in very good condition but with some tanning to the pages and an architecture practice's stamp to the ffep (Halpern of London). The binding is secure. The dustwrapper is a little chipped to the edges but otherwise very good. It has not been price-clipped and is now within a protective sleeve.
