Wood and Modern II: Concrete Forms

Some of the nicest work I see are the wood forms for concrete. These are almost Japanese in their form. Pics taken while waiting for the train at the 46th Street Station,
above the intersection of Farragut in Philadelphia.

Taken as a design source for architecture, concrete form work could lead to very engaging details and human scale. The discipline of the forms also allows the plywood itself to have flaws. It all still hangs together nicely even with the plugs in the plywood.
