MODERN MASONRY MAGAZINE: ULTIMATE ALLIANCE, STRENGTH AND BEAUTY
In many art forms, it’s acceptable to be beautiful and yet frail, fragile. In architecture, beauty is appreciated but frailty is a liability. Concrete masonry products are available in such an array of colors, textures, and styles as to offer nearly endless design options. Fortunately, concrete’s strength and durability also make it a uniquely suitable product for the long term. This issue of Modern Masonry magazine features case studies and product spotlights that speak to the balance of strength and beauty in our product offerings. Included in this issue:
