Group Description

This group is about DECORATIVE CONCRETE ARCHITECTURE of any century.

Hello and welcome to the Concrete Architecture pool!

This group is dedicated to concrete architecture, especially structural concrete architecture.

Please note - the architectural work should have something significant to do with concrete construction. Many, if not most, buildings use concrete, and this pool doesn't aim to duplicate the many 'Architecture' groups.

So, please, don't post pictures just because there is some piece of concrete in it. For instance, highway overpasses are often visually pleasing, but they seldom hold much architectural value (so don't be surprised if very few of those make it to the pool :))

Also, please note:

- Architecture from any era

- Decorative concrete volumes and structures

- The subject of the image must clearly be the concrete building, not its surroundings

- NO city skylines

- If you have information about the architect, then by all means add it, it's informative!

- The pool is moderated, i.e., submissions are queued first for review. If images don't meet the (simple) criteria above, they will be removed, and their posters may be suspended, without warning. [MODERATION IS TEMPORARILY DISABLED]

- In order to give everyone a chance to be seen by fellow members, we'll limit the number of images added to the pool at three per week. (That limit may be lowered or raised depending on feedback and need, though.)

There are no enforced commenting rules - which are unenforceable anyway :) - but a pool is only as worthy as its dialogues, so don't just post, but look at others' images as well!

Group Rules

Hello and welcome to the Concrete Architecture pool!

This group is dedicated to concrete architecture, especially structural concrete architecture.

Please note - the architectural work should have something significant to do with concrete construction. Many, if not most, buildings use concrete, and this pool doesn't aim to duplicate the many 'Architecture' groups.

Conversely, concrete should still feature prominently in the image. If a significant part of the photo is "environment" - it may not be accepted.

Likewise - and this may sound silly but you should see what is submitted - images of brick buildings, iron bridges, Eiffel towers, and such like structures (hint: the Flatiron is not concrete either) will of course be denied entry but their authors also booted off. Maintaining such a big pool is work, and if some don't feel like even paying attention to the simple rules, we won't be saying attention to their images either. (Sorry for the rant.)

Finally, please - don't post pictures just because there is some piece of concrete in it. For instance, highway overpasses are often visually pleasing, but they seldom hold much architectural value (so don't be surprised if very few of those make it to the pool :))

Also, please note:

- Architecture from any era

- Decorative concrete volumes and structures

- The subject of the image must clearly be the concrete building, not its surroundings

- NO city skylines

- ONLY your own photos (and photos only)...

- ...but that doesn't mean we need your signature across the image.

- (Or a big border.)

- If you have information about the architect, then by all means add it, it's informative!

- The pool is moderated, i.e., submissions are queued first for review. If images don't meet the (simple) criteria above, they will be removed, and their posters may be suspended, without warning.

- In order to give everyone a chance to be seen by fellow members, we'll limit the number of images added to the pool at three per week. (That limit may be lowered or raised depending on feedback and need, though.)
