Reinforced concrete is the go-to powerhouse of modern construction: no other load-bearing building material is as malleable with similarly good noise and fire protection properties. The book illustrates this versatility with around 20 building examples and specialist articles from the fields of structural and civil engineering. In-depth project descriptions and numerous detailed drawings show the design and construction process of these halls, bridges, railway stations, and office buildings. Articles informed by research and practice also portray a building material in transformation. Still, the reinforced concrete buildings of earlier decades also constitute a legacy, and their restoration and maintenance continue to fascinate us to this day. The book also takes a critical look at the handling of this building material.
