After visiting The Pulitzer yesterday, I was inspired by the incredible concrete architecture of the building. The engineering team was literally past the forefront of previous applications of concrete when the building was constructed, and the forms that result from Tadao Ando's vision are amazing.
With concrete/rebar being the predominant construction method in much of Ecuador, we should think about pushing the limits of its uses -- with regard to natural light, insulation capacity, sustainability, etc. Of course, doing so with a much smaller budget and much simpler construction techniques...
