Heavy beach reading.

Forget flimsy paperbacks this summer; my recommendation is Concrete, a must-have architecture book from Phaidon. Written and edited by William Hall, with an essay by Leonard Koren, this visual stunner will amaze and intrigue you. Think concrete is a cold, dull material? These 240 pages will change your mind.
