Abstract:
The ordinary concrete structure-whether of building blocks or monolithic masonry, and whether as left by the forms or as commonly finished for exposure to view-is anything but pleasing in apperance, and this fact seems to be the prinicpal reason for the disfavor with which some architects and engineers regard concrete as a material for construction.
