Concrete, like everything else, depends on what you make of it. Looking at it objectively, concrete is a compound of cement, water and diverse aggregates. But concrete is more, it is the very material from which our cityscapes are formed. People, however, make a city thrive, not bricks and mortar. A city is an interaction of thousands of social and cultural elements and concrete is its body. As an inevitable fact in today's living reality, concrete is tangible, visible, unavoidable, often repellant but a hard to ignore partner.
