Abstract

The Betoni–Concrete exhibition presents concrete and its use from the point of view of engineers, architects, designers and artists.
They say that trends are circular and what’s old becomes new again. This is true for fashion, music, and art. In the case of architecture, this can be exemplified by the architectural style of Brutalism, which is characterized by the use of béton brut (raw concrete) along with its rough surfaces, massive forms, unusual shapes and the expression of structure. But the trends of concrete have always been in-between architectural visions and societal values.
