The Architectural Treatment of Reinforced Concrete

There are, obviously, two ways of treating the material wholse appearance we are to discuss. The first, usual, and wrong way, is to case it with brick, stolne, or terra cotta. An unsatisfactory example of casing, or rather, marking, is Sir Reginald Blomfield’s design for Lambeth Bridge. β€œThe gods nod sometimes.” Professor Beresford Pite denounced it in the β€œ Times, ” and crossing pens with Sir Reginald, completely disarmed him.
