Concrete
CONCRETE is a composite material composed of coarse aggregate bonded together with a fluid cement that hardens over time. Most concretes used are lime -based concretes such as Portland cement concrete or concretes made with other hydraulic cements , such as ciment fondu . However, asphalt concrete , which is frequently used for road surfaces , is also a type of concrete, where the cement material is bitumen , and polymer concretes are sometimes used where the cementing material is a polymer. When aggregate is mixed together with dry Portland cement and water, the mixture forms a fluid slurry that is easily poured and molded into shape. The cement reacts chemically with the water and other ingredients to form a hard matrix that binds the materials together into a durable stone-like material that has many uses

Atrium (architecture)
In architecture , an ATRIUM (plural: ATRIA or ATRIUMS) is a large open air or skylight covered space surrounded by a building . Atria were a common feature in Ancient Roman dwellings , providing light and ventilation to the interior . Modern atria, as developed in the late 19th and 20th centuries, are often several stories high and having a glazed roof or large windows , and often located immediately beyond the main entrance doors (in the lobby ). Atria are a popular design feature because they give their buildings a "feeling of space and light." The atrium has become a key feature of many buildings in recent years. Atria are popular with building users, building designers and building developers. Users like atria because they create a dynamic and stimulating interior that provides shelter from the external environment while maintaining a visual link with that environment
