Travelling around Austria, Germany, the Netherlands, Britain and China, architectural photographer Gisela Erlacher took these fascinating shots of hidden pockets of civilisation that live underneath bulky skies of grey, brutalist concrete.

Skies of Concrete, published by Park Books, is available to buy on 2 March 2017 for £20, amazon.co.uk
