Brick and stone have been used in architecture for a long time and are favoured by architects due to their unique properties and characteristics. In recent years, with the development of science and technology, the variety of brick and stone has been extended and updated continuously, which contributes to the distinct architectural features. This book discusses brick and stone in two separate sections, and goes further into detailed classification. The cases are elaborately selected and sorted, each analysed carefully throughphotos, detailed drawings and informative text. Through the summary of state quo and future development of brick and stone's application in architectural design, readers will get a comprehensive new understanding of this material.
