I'm a big fan of audio books. I download them to my IPhone and listen while I do other things..... my favorite way to multi-task!
I've just finished 40+ hours of Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follet.
What a story!
The scene is the 12th century in England, and centers around the building of the cathedral at Kingsbridge. There were many discussions within the story about architecture and engineering. It was like peering into the design history books to see the initial thought processes that created the historic cathedrals of that time.
It's a story of stone...aquiring them, building with them, engineering them.
It got me thinking about how we use stone in structures today.
Certainly, it's easier to shape them and use them as an architectural element in our designs, but
I think their impact is still the same...dramatic, warm and timeless.
