Stone DesignBook - 2007
"Stone is one of the oldest building materials humanity knows. And even today with all the new materials and techniques available to architects and designers, stone is still used everywhere in the world. Its stability, elegance, insulating and accoustical properties are too highly regarded to abandon this material solely because of its remote origins or for the advantages of other materials. This book shows, how multifariously stone can be leveraged. On the basis of about 50 outstanding examples the use of stone in the interior and exterior is introduced in a great way. Plans and details of the projects as well as an index of contact information of the designers and architects are enclosed."--Publisher's website.
