The practical implementation of Stereotomy

From the earliest times in history, people have always built, sometimes small constructions but sometimes great buildings, using huge blocks of stone. Each great period in history has required different types of buildings. Like the architects of today, while designing their buildings, the architects and the master masons of the past needed to consider all the aspects of their architectural design.The most important aspects of an architectural design are:


-The practical aspects, that is the utility of the building, what to provide and how this may be arranged and the method of its construction.


- The aesthetic aspect, that is the consideration taken to design the building with a view to aesthetic appeal.
