Title: Inexpensive Homes of Reinforced Concrete
Author(s): Milton Dana Morrill
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 468-490
Abstract:What architectural style are we developing to-day? The Greeks developed the lintel type of architecture, following the natural shapes and sizes of available stone. The Romans built mostly in brick and developed the arch as a natural form for their material. What new type and style will be developed through the use of reinforced concrete? There must be a concrete style. We have already worked out the structural forms which seem best suited to the material, and possibly the best concrete buildings have been designed by engineers, as they have followed the simplest and most logical shapes, and have not been hampered by architectural preccedent.
