‘Casting Architecture’ deals with the process of bringing architectural visions into reality with pre-formed and stacked concrete structures. Often overlooked by Western architecture today, the ventilation block has a long history as a traditional building module in tropical regions. It provides climatic comfort, protection and architectonic expression.

In this richly illustrated book, architect and educator Florian Schätz seeks to rediscover formwork’s beauty through a continuous application of modules, inspiring design enthusiasts to conceive futuristic ideas in cement and concrete and enabling creative liberation in architecture that goes beyond the limits of classical building methods.
