reinforced concrete, defined as concrete strengthened with steel reinforcing, be it bars or mesh. Concrete is a material that excels in compression, so the addition of steel, which is good in tension, results in monolithic walls or floors with the best of both structural worlds. It also results in a distinctive appearance that is industrial yet very tactile and very diverse in application. Reinforced concrete is sometimes referred to as poured-in-place concrete, since it necessitates that the formwork, reinforcing, and the actual pouring of the concrete happen on-site. Alternatively, precast concrete and concrete blocks are respectively prefab and modular construction elements made from concrete off-site. The following examples illustrate the first condition, the rootedness in place that results from using reinforced concrete
