Buildings have been built from stone since the stone age and stone is still the most durable, versatile, sustainable, and elegant material to build with. You might think that after building with stone for thousands of years, the technology of stone would be old hat, but that is not true. The technology of stone has entered the 21st century with new fabrication and building technologies that were unimagined by our stone age predecessors.
