In the last article I drew the distinction between “ ferro-concrete couchant ” and "ferro concrete rampant.” This is a very important distinction, for it implies there are two Principal modes in which ferro-concrete mav find expression. The champions of theie diverse structural modes have separated themielves into two schools which at the present moment are warring with one another. Those who insist that ferro-concrete should be rampant on all occasions are apt to imagine that buildings in which this material is employed in an unsensational manner are lacking in modernity while, on the other hand, the conservatives who like ferro-concrete to be “ couchant ” regard with little favour any attempts to make a merely mechanical invention an excuse for stylistic novelties.
