Abstract:
The consideration of concrete from an aesthetic point of view may strike the average cement user as inappropriate and impossible, for hitherto the term "concrete" at once suggested foundations, piers, dams, abutments, and nowadays it more than likely calls to mind columns, beams, floors, walls, and in fact the entire structural parts of buildings.
