Take a look at the work of Mexican architects such as Felix Candela, Enrique de la Mora or Juan Antonio Tonda Magallon. There's a Spanish architect called Eduardo Torroja who might be another great example. Concrete shells are structures that truly fascinate me!

Thanks! Candela was going to be my second choice. Is it any of these @theshoulderoforion?
