Formed and Finished Concrete

All over Mexico one sees beautiful examples of preformed concrete work. 
In this post I will concentrate on chimneys, skylights, and cooling vents. 
I have never watched how they make these but
 I am assuming they are indeed preformed and out of concrete.
 I will continue to study this in the future.

This is obviously a flue. Alamos,  Sonora

This roof shows a flue on the left and then a skylight next to it.
The other two would make good cooling towers 
if that is not indeed what they are. San Carlos, Sonora

These next two are in Alamos, Sonora.

A flue on the left but is the one on the right a vent?
