The Ferro-concrete Style: Reinforced Concrete in Modern Architecture : with Four Hundred Illustrations of European and American Ferro-concrete Design

Front Cover
Hennessey + Ingalls, 1928 - Architecture - 265 pages
From the baroque excesses of Los Angeles's Mayan theater to the starkly expressionist churches of '20s Europe, this book traces the history of reinforced concrete from its roots through its glory days in the first three decades of this century. Long out of print and hard to find, Onderdonk's masterful survey has been faithfully reproduced to include the three color plates and over 300 black and white illustrations.
