Concrete Houses explores the use of concrete in landmark contemporary residential architecture from Australia and abroad.
Concrete has conviction, strength and directness. It has plasticity, too, which makes the possibilities for form-making almost endless.
Concrete Houses explores the sculptural possibilities of concrete as the material of choice in landmark contemporary houses across Australia, Brazil, Portugal, Japan, Sweden, the Netherlands and the USA, from the hands of major international architects including Sou Fujimoto, Tom Kundig, Valerio Olgiati and Marcio Kogan, and Australians such as Peter Stutchbury, Alex Popov, Ian McDougall and Neil Durbach.
Illustrated throughout with exceptional colour photography, and selected plans and drawings, Concrete Houses celebrates the incontrovertible fusion of concrete’s versatility and brute force to make timeless architecture of lyric beauty.
