Portuguese term or phrase: concreto armado bruto e aparente
talking about a modernist structure.

Aren't these just two ways of saying "raw" concrete? Or is there a subtle distinction I am missing?

"Os elementos construtivos (estrutura e vedação) são explorados de forma independente e com grande expressividade: pilares, vigas (consoles que se projetam na fachada para receberem estruturas verticais que suportam panos de elementos vazados), elementos vazados, caixas d’água são plasticamente explorados através do uso do **concreto armado bruto e aparente**. De uma forma geral foram utilizados materiais em seu estado natural: tijolo cerâmico, concreto aparente e madeira."
