Concrete is a strong, eco-friendly and affordable substance and has uses that can be traced back to ancient times. It’s also the most widely used man-made material (tonnage wise) in the world.
Many structures, including famous ones like the Hoover Dam and Roman Pantheon, are made from it, and some not-so-famous structures, like our homes, usually start with it. It’s always been a part of our lives, in ways seen and unseen, and we probably haven’t given it much thought.
In recent years, though, this tough and durable substance has emerged as an indoor design trend. No longer considered something that needs to be hidden, walls and floors are being exposed to make a design statement.
