Constructing in massive stone today

Gilles Perraudin - Constructing in massive stone today
A manual for massive stone construction, by a pionneer in sustainable and ecological architecture.
“We have been building massive stone constructions—in which stone plays a structural role— for fifteen years now. We have presented and advocated the use of this material in many lectures, conferences and seminars in France and around the world. As our presentations are frequently met with the same questions, we decided to record the lessons of our experience in order to provide architects and builders with some answers regarding the process of building with massive stone. Rather than compile an exhaustive compendium, which would be a time-consuming and tedious task, we opted to create a construction manual. Without answering all the questions raised by the use of stone, this manual will have the merit of serving as a guide to all those who wish to pursue this approach to construction.”
Gilles Perraudin
