Grown Man Style

Because you're way too old to keep wearing ironic T-shirts.
-Matt Jacobson
Living/working in poured concrete is cool, quiet and safe.  And, Tadao Ando is the master of a contemporary style of architecture that is, appropriately, gaining new attention.  Like a concrete Buddha, Ando has been known to meditate at the walls of Louis Kahn’s Salk Institute masterwork in San Diego.  From Ray Kappe’s iconic mid-80s beach house, which I am honored to call home, to green examples from Sydney to Helsinki, it’s time to honor concrete, and with an updated Ando book shipping in the next couple of months, make it part of your growing GMS library.
