These are some gorgeous examples! I love the softening of the industrial aesthetic through the wood accents (as I see other readers like, too!). I read recently about a pair of Barcelona-based artists who have created what they call a concrete carpet, which is essentially concrete tiles treated with acid. The effect is kind of psychedelic, yet reminds me of natural mineral mottling one sees in some nature photos: http://www.smart-urban-stage.com/blog/future-of-the-city/new-ways-of-sanctuary/ I wonder if any readers have experimented with acid washes?
