The age of stone architecture is timeless and has prehistoric roots; it reaches beyond all trends and tendencies; it avoids that sense of transience that mark most contemporary architecture; and, at the time, it inspires our most varied reflections and experiments, wether of constructive elements or small architectonic works. This book seeks to give a logical and chronological order to those reflections. Through our contribution to the development of stone architecture, we wish to emphasis that there is much still to be investigated and invented with stone, whereby we mean the enthusiastic rediscovery of those techniques and processes that time has forgotten but that hold, nonetheless, promise for the future.
