Many of the architectural projects of the 1960s had an ambitious sense of potential, possibility and innovation. Those that were completed, though, often proved more complex and problematic in their everyday use. concrete thoughts re-visits those ideas and spaces through the work of four contemporary artists who deal with urban spatial themes - Rut Blees Luxemburg, Toby Paterson and Jane and Louise Wilson - and opens up and examines the tensions that exist between an idea for a project and its actual use.
