As a child of the late twentieth century, I never paid much attention to concrete architecture, since it was just so ubiquitous.
Not until I saw live and in-person Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater, that is! (The canopy over the walkway to the property's guesthouse is not the single most spectacular feature of the house, but it is actually the longest cantilever of the structure, and took a thirty-six hours' continuous concrete pour to achieve!)
Want more spectacular concrete architecture? Check out Liquid Stone: New Architecture in Concrete, "a nice round-up of contemporary concrete architecture, with some stunning pictures, from the National Building Museum. Be sure to follow the 'Featured Projects' link on the right..." (from Metafilter)
