Concrete architecture: more Minimalistic and less Brutalist

Concrete is the most dynamic and flexible building materials in the architectural history. It has altered the ways in which designs and buildings are conceptualized and built in the modern age. Concrete has been termed as the material of modern architecture.


Both concrete and reinforced concrete, have permitted architects to explore new domain of designing and construction. Concrete now contributes to the crafting of beautiful homes, strong bridges and even skyscrapers.
