Concrete Quarters

The wonderful world of concrete architecture is archived in the trade publication "Concrete Quaterly" which first appeared in 1947.

The first editions were full of bridges and power plant chimneys. Throughout the 1950s and 1960s the issues are full of daring and visionary buildings from Brazilia to car-plants in Venezuela and water towers in Italy.

During the 1980s "Concrete Quaterly" switched to full colour print which didn´t help to shine a better light on the boring mass-produced row-homes and suburban churches which began to litter the western hemisphere.

You can download every single issue of "CQ" as a pdf at The Concrete Centre
