Here's the guide architects and building professionals need to meet the exploding demand for using stone in contemporary architecture and understand why stone is an attractive and practical option for new construction.

Magnificently illustrated with 300 illustrations (200 in beautiful full-color), the author covers every type of structure, including:
* Residential
* Religious
* Civic
* Commercial

Extensive case studies, primarily for structures built within the last decade, cover:
