Stone is a fascinating, fresh and insightful global tour of the world´s oldest and most beautiful building material
Featuring more than 170 structures, from prehistory through to today, the book includes an incredible range of buildings: awe-inspiring Neolithic monuments and the epic Pyramids of Giza feature alongside the work of twentieth-century icons, from Mies van der Rohe´s seminal Barcelona Pavilion to Marcel Breuer´s daring Met building in New York.
There are also projects by the world´s best contemporary architects, from Snøhetta´s angular Norwegian National Opera and Ballet in Oslo to Kengo Kuma´s sculptural Chokkura Plaza in Japan and David Chipperfield´s geometric Museo Jumex in Mexico City.
Arranged to promote comparison and discussion, each project includes an extended caption providing a perceptive commentary on the building.
An elegant and informative visual exploration, Stone demonstrates the remarkable variety of creative and innovative structures the material has inspired around the world.
