concrete
August 6

Often mistakenly referred to as 'cement', concrete is a stone-like material developed by the Romans composed of a precise mixture of cement, aggregates, and water. When mixed, concrete can be placed within formwork to create beautifully shaped monolithic structures. The modern master of the material, Pier Luigi Nervi, is known for his elegant works of concrete such as the Giovanni Berta Stadium in Florence and the Exhibition Hall located in Turin, Italy.
