Boston Concrete 1957-1976

Boston Concrete explores the profound effect of concrete within the development of Boston's architecture between 1957-1967. It heralds the often overlooked material: concrete. Various perspectives provide a rich insight and uncover various facets regarding the development of Boston's concrete architecture, including Tad Stahl (architect of the State Street Bank), Michael McKinnell (architect of Boston City Hall), historian Douglass Shand-Tucci, as well as critic and historian Michael Kubo, among others. A fantastic exploration into concrete!
