Building Beautifully in Concrete: Tim Parrott

"There have always been beautiful concrete buildings, but a great many concrete constructions were put up too quickly and too cheaply, and too close to more traditional styles of building, and these are the unattractive objects which have shaped the public attitude to concrete. This course focuses on the gems, buildings and bridges we love today and which could not have been constructed in any other material."
