“Natural Stone Guide for Architects” serves as a reference guide for architects, interior designers, engineers, natural stone installers, academicians, and students who need fundamental knowledge related to the use of natural stone in construction.
“Each chapter of “Natural Stone Guide for Architects”, aiming to answer the question “Which natural stone should be used where?”, has been penned by experienced architects, academicians, and industry experts.

Natural stones have been a widely preferred and used primary construction material since ancient times, notably in structural, flooring, and cladding applications. 

With their rich variety, colors, and patterns, along with their durability and long service life, natural stones significantly contribute to the architectural and aesthetic identity of buildings. This book aims to convey essential knowledge about the use of natural stone in architecture with historical references.

The “Natural Stone Guide for Architects” presents topics from the formation of natural stone from block to cladding, to its production and processing stages; significant structures that have left their mark in architectural history and the place and importance of natural stone in architectural history; criteria for selecting natural stone in architecture; its use in interior and exterior spaces, from residential to public areas; design methods and construction principles; principles of decay, maintenance, and conservation; evaluation methods in terms of sustainability; numerical data on our country’s natural stone resources, and much more. All this information is accompanied by texts written by experts. In the “Types of Natural Stone” section, commonly used natural stone of different types and origins are showcased with their technical specifications. At the end of the book, there’s also a comprehensive dictionary prepared by Prof. Dr. Emin Çiftçi, which explains technical terms related to natural stone. 

STONELINE Publications, directed by Architect Gülçin İpek, views the “Natural Stone Guide for Architects” as an initial step on the subject. They aim for the content to be continuously updated and developed in future editions based on needs and suggestions, filling a significant gap in the literature of natural stone. 

With nearly 1,000 photographs and technical detail drawings accompanying the text, the book informs the reader about the use of natural stone in architecture.
