The new face of concrete

Ever since its launch in 1947, Concrete Quarterly has been one of architects’ favourite feel-good publications, a magazine by people who love concrete, for people who love concrete. And now it’s a digital download too – the 248th issue, published this month, is the first to be available in a tablet-friendly format. More traditional readers will find that the print edition is 40% bigger too, with a new technical section for architects, a really techie section for engineers and an expanded “Retro concrete” feature, where we delve into CQ’s extensive archive for forgotten gems and invite renowned architects to choose their favourite concrete buildings. CQ is produced by my company Wordmule for the Concrete Centre and you can download both the print and digital issues here.
