Jiménez Montoya Essential. Reinforced concrete

This 16th edition of the classic ARMED CONCRETE by JIMÉNEZ MONTOYA has tried to keep everything that could be considered essential from the previous editions, dispensing only with what for use or by regulation has become obsolete.

The air is weightless | Sergio de Miguel

As the ocean is formed especially by water, the architecture is done principally by air. Even so that determines what happens in the ocean, and in the architecture, is not another thing that what is not a water, or air. Continent and content are never unlike, remote, and coincidental.
