Summary

Set in stone is well-known metaphor to describe something immortal and immov-able. Stone is considered to be an archaic and ultimate building material. In times when sustainability has become the keyword of climate-adapted construction, stone architecture is gaining more and more attention. This volume will provide an updated overview of stone architecture, 60 projects, from all around the world: whether cast stone, marble or bricks the reader takes part in a fascinating trip, discovering buildings, which are not dematerialized, not fashionably transparent, but are standing in a millennia old tradition of architecture, which has not lost its enchantment in 21st century.
