Open up your mind for unlimited concrete architecture designs – When we hear the following two words – concrete architecture, what occurred in our minds? Certainly will be a lot of different answers to that question. To be sure, this is one of the materials that will take us on other side of the architecture science. When applied in a building, concrete will give us an incredible display. As we know, there are so many innovations and ideas that emerged related to the use of concrete as a material that will give a different view on an architectural concept. At the beginning of creation and discovery, concrete is used as a mortar until in the 1900’s we know that the concrete is a building material that is very important.
Many of us who must want to know what it is concrete. Well, concrete is basically a mixture of various materials i.e. cement, water and aggregate rock which then hardened and stiff. It is one of the materials used to strengthen the framework of a building. While there are plenty of water underneath, the concrete will remain sturdy stand. Furthermore, we know of reinforced concrete, which reportedly makes a revolution in architecture. Since then, the concrete continues to develop until the last few years we could get there some concrete architecture in a variety of attractive designs to decorate homes in a variety of decorating styles.
Concrete in the end proved itself not only as the materials used for static sub-structural, but also has an important role as an architectural skin. We will see there are so many designs that use concrete combined with a wide selection of other materials ranging from furniture, flooring surfaces, facades, and others. We will find an almost unlimited choice of designs presented by the concrete. The potential of a material is not only determined by the function of the material itself, but also how a designer or architect or engineer saw an opportunity to produces a wide variety of designs and styles. This will require a high level of creativity and open-mindedness of both parties (owner and architect) in view of the other functions of a material existing.
