Title: The Artistic Treatment of Concrete Structures
Author(s): Oliver Randolph Parry
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 339-341
Abstract:While much of lasting benefit should result from this well attended and diversified gathering, yet an analysis of these proceedings reveals the fact that only a few gentlemen representing the profession of which the speaker is a member are or have been present during our deliberations. This does not seem exactly as it should be, either for the good of the architectural profession or for the good of concrete as a building material and must suggest to our officers and members that something is lacking to excite a real interest in concrete as a building material and must suggest to our officers and members that something is lacking to excite a real interest in concrete construction which we, as a body, advocate. Can it be that the lack of a proper exploiting of examples of artistic treatement in our magazines, and insufficient papers upon this subject in our Proceedings are partly the cause of such disinterestedness? The speaker thinks this is the case to a great extent.
