You think you know concrete? You think that hard stuff around your office building is the only way it comes? Did you know it can be so light that it floats in water, or so translucent you can see shadows through it? How about come in colors like bright white, or like in the National Gallery of Art East Wing, pink like marble?
This is the ability of concrete, and over at the National Building Museum, one of my favorites, they have a very cool exhibition of concrete and its many forms â€“ Liquid Stone. Unlike concrete, which heats up for the first 24 hours, and then cools for the next 24 years, this exhibition is hot until January 29, then gone for good.
