Building one's house out of concrete is certainly a durable way to ensure it won't blow down in a hurricane, and many Japanese homes have taken on this aesthetic over the last decade. However, Asia isn't the only area adopting this type of architectural design.
From the US to Europe, architects from around the world are experimenting with various ways to build a house. Dionisio Gonzalez from Spain imagines housing in an apocalyptic world with his latest concept artwork titled 'Architecture of Resistance.' Slabs of concrete are transformed into fashionable apartments and chic condos with a beachfront view.
Obviously Japanese homes done in this concrete style are not for everyone, but for those looking for a sturdy design and one that will last, these concrete concepts will give you a few ideas.
