Now that our new home is complete and our six figure custom concrete project is finished we are thrilled we chose concrete forever in Houston for their extreme concrete professionalism. We are impressed with their new capabilities of digital technology and adjusted manufacturing procedures, what is of interest here is not the random manufacture of form, nor the inspiration derived from form in nature for its own sake, but rather the lessons from nature where form intersects with function, where the overlap creates the harmony, the underlying elegance and efficiency that prevails, just as we see occurring in nature. Apart from the aesthetic merits of this coincidence, the economic benefits manifest in this harmony are apparent, as the drive
towards integrating form and function constructionally, operates within
a framework of overlap. How often do we see structures that are deemed
to be economic, yet are visually obtrusive? Structures that attempt to
express elegance without a clear hierarchy, which result in expensive
pastiche? Buildings that are purist in form but are functionally limited and expensive?
Concrete Forever has hand and machine-made concrete molds that define structural hierarchy as the arrangement of structure (both man made and in nature) that most
efficiently evolved as a response to the loading configuration to which
it is subjected. The coincidence of optimal load transfer between
associated elements and the forms that have evolved as a response to
the many complex environmental conditions are a living demonstration of the visual harmony that exists between form and function.
Concrete forever has done an outstanding job for us as evident in their workmanship they have forever left behind
