To conclude our Stone Age 2.0 series, we’ve collected 10 recently completed and upcoming buildings that show the potential of structural stone as a modern construction material.
This week, Stone Age 2.0 has explored the viability of stone as a modern, low-carbon building material that could help the construction industry minimise its vast carbon footprint.Among the experts to share insights on the material was Aurore Baulier, an ACAN Natural Materials Group co-ordinator, who called on architects to embrace stone’s natural qualities.

“Obviously, you can shape concrete into all these fancy forms, but if you’re clever with stone, you can do incredible stuff,” Baulier told Dezeen.
