Concrete is either Loved or Hated!
The trend of showcasing the timelessness of concrete structures started in the era of Brutalism Architecture. Brutalism is derived from the French word “Brute Beton” meaning raw concrete. The buildings with concrete architecture portrayed a raw, robust and bulky attitude. Concrete was criticised in many instances for being a cold material. Vis-à-vis it provided a strong, timeless, confident and an aesthetic appeal. There are always people who love or criticize Concrete.
Eventually, the trend of concrete passed the test of time, slowly but steadily, many architects and designers across the globe adopted the material in their design language and started designing buildings with casted concrete. Since design is always based on culture and practice, many styles of design using concrete started to evolve. The technological advancement of the material over the period of time has paved way to use the material in many different verticals, not limiting to construction.
