Set in Stone: Rethinking a Timeless Material by Dirk Meyhöfer presents examples of contemporary architecture where natural stone is used as the main building material.
Set in Stone approaches stone from four viewpoints: as a material for cladding (chapter titled Skin), as a dominant structural material (chapter titled Elemental), as an ornamental feature (chapter titled Ornamental), and as a massive structural element (chapter titled XXL). The richly illustrated book consists of project presentations by architects such as Jensen & Skodvin, Snøhetta, Gert Wingård, Rafael Moneo and many others.
The copy in stock is in excellent condition, good as new. The only visible faults are the slight shelf wear on the covers.
