Concrete: do architects have their heads in the sand?


It's probably about 20 years since I found - from, I think, Blue Circle's own information - that a tonne of cement produces a tonne of CO2. That makes it all the more important to preserve the embodied energy in buildings like Preston Bus Station (saved) or the Tricorn Centre (lost). A downturn in the cycle of popularity is really not enough. Think of the amount of concrete in the Aylesbury Estate.
