Unrestricted by requirements of standardization, concrete is adaptable as field-fabricated material or as shop-fabricated units. Its nonmodular qualitiesmake it eminently suited to contemporary building methods and design. It is an active agent in thechanging form of architecture. There should be a moderation of the exaggerated requirements of our building laws to reduce cost and massiveness and in-crease flexibility of design. The chief problem IS with finishes - texture and color. What can be done to remedy the deficiency of an extra operation for aesthetic effect. Needed improvements are: good integral texture, nonfading color, capable of accurate control end good weatherability.
