  • About the Edition

    This book surveys important stone properties, both physical and chemical, pertinent to the needs of architects, engineers and stone producers. Emphasis is placed on the chemical characteristics of the pollutants in air and water and their interaction with stone, which accelerates the process of stone decay, often many times faster than in rural locations in quarries or rock cuts. Graphs and diagrams, the scientist"s language, analyze and quantify the natural processes which lead to stone decay: simplification of the graphs enhances their legibility not only for the student of geology, environmental science, engineering, but also for the museum curator and conservator who deal with stone monuments. Only thorough knowledge of stone properties and processes can lessen their frequent misuse and the present decay of urban stone, thus enabling its prevention with preservatives. The book also provides information for the stone producer and consumer for a better understanding of the product stone.

Architecture - Architecture - Techniques: The techniques of architecture in the sense that they will be considered here are simply the methods by which structures are formed from particular materials. These methods are influenced not only by the availability and character of materials but also by the total technological development of society, for architecture depends on an organized labour.

    And though the new book features plenty of big stones, and big buildings, Curtis doesn’t overlook the importance, and usefulness of smaller Stone structures in architecture. "One might say that the smaller stones are, the less useful they become," she says. I was given this book for my first design class, we were supposed to write an essay of our thoughts about the book and if it changed our way to experience architecture, or the lack thereof. We had several projects going on, and competitions as well, that my professor 4/5.

    Stone Architecture Book In this sweeping volume, Professor Acocella analyzes every type of stone, from those used by the Egyptians to the marble used by Mies van der Rohe.   “From Stone to Paper is a passionate and lucid scholarly argument for the vitality of late Mughal architecture and urbanism and for its crucial significance on the historical trajectory of South Asian transitions from early modern to modern and contemporary periods.”—Sussan Babaie, author of Isfahan and Its Palaces.
