    Abstract

    STONE has been present in our building culture since the beginning of human existence. It is important as a permanent, durable material because we perceive it as solid, stout, and secure for shelter; it was the strongest natural substance that seemingly lasted forever. We memorialize our heritage with stone monuments, we build our important institutional edifices of stone. Natural stone makes architecture art.
