Title: Monolithic Concrete Wall Buildings-Methods, Construction and Cost
Author(s): Robert Aiken
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 83-105
Abstract:Man's first step towards civilization was in the erection of a shelter in which to live. Wood, stone and brick are the building materials which have served as stepping stones and marked the stages of his advancement from the cave and the skin tent to the temple and the palace. Steel, hollow tile and terra cotta, adjuncts of strength, economy and beauty, are of comparatively modern use. Now we are upon the threshold of a new era of construction, to which the artist, the architect and the mechanic must readapt themselves-an era that has just dawned and is appropriately christened "The Age of Concrete."
