Celebrated British architect David Chipperfield has taken a particular interest in columns many years ago. He has been studying them since, from those in ancient Egyptian, Greek and Roman temples and palaces to Le Corbusier’s pilotis and works of art, such as Constantin Brancusi’s Endless Column or contemporary stelae.

The book Sticks and Stones is Chipperfield’s personal primer of columns. He has complied 144 examples from three millenniums, following an inherent logic. He looks at their aesthetic qualities, architectural characteristics, and functional merits. Each item is documented with images and artistic illustrations, sketches by Chipperfield himself, complemented by annotations. In an introductory essay he explains where his fascination originates from, how they inspire him in his architectural practice and what role they play in his thinking.

A historical essay by the eminent Polish-American scholar Josph Rykwert, newly written for this book, rounds out this very special volume.
