Concrete Quarterly doesn’t often feature cityscapes. But in this issue, you’ll find both the New York skyline and London from the air, raising some interesting questions about our future and the role that concrete can play in it.

Projects include: One World Trade Center, Issam Fares Institute, Rambert HQ and the John Henry Brookes building in Oxford.

Tall buildings in concrete are presented in the Structures section and in Focus, natural ventilation solutions are featured with case studies.
