Entering the Strata-Sphere

January 2010 Vol. 10 No. 1

Clearly, designing and placing concrete is a process. However, for me, it’s best when not overly processed. I’m not particularly fond of Wonder Bread or Cheez Whiz. I much prefer homemade bread or artisan bread like a pugliese, or a really ripe and nasty brie, exuding ammonia and looking not just interesting, but also perhaps a bit dangerous. I like my concrete the same way I like my breads and cheeses, with every bit of the material exuding something interesting and reflecting the character of the ambient conditions and personalities that shaped it. And I’m not the only one who feels like this.
