An overview book of the 21st century Estonian concrete construction, “Concrete Book – Concrete Buildings in the 21st Century Estonia”, has been published commissioned by the Estonian Concrete Association and the Association of Construction Material Producers of Estonia.
The book contains numerous interviews with Estonian architects, constructors, managers of construction and concrete companies, as well as overview articles on the history of Estonian concrete architecture (by Karin Paulus) and the history of the Concrete Building of the Year contest (by Eva Kiisler).
“When we think about our living environment, the contemporary country and society are unthinkable without concrete and artificial stone,” the chairman of the Estonian Concrete Imre Leetmasays in the book’s preface. “Everyone can ponder, browsing through this book, whether these winners reflect the environment around us on a broader scale. Are these buildings, or at least some of them becoming landmarks? Imprints in stone of their own time.”
The richly illustrated book with texts in Estonian, English, and Russian, gives an overview of the contemporary Estonian concrete architecture and construction on the basis of the winning works of the Concrete Building of the Year contest, the oldest construction contest in Estonia.
The publication was commissioned by the Estonian Concrete Association and the Association of Construction Material Producers of Estonia.
