Stone has been used as a structural material for thousands of years and yet its use has declined in recent times.. This paper uses a series of stone stairs, including the award-winning Formby Stair designed by Webb Yates Engineers, as case studies to discuss the creative use of stone. It details the design, testing and realisation of contemporary stone structures.
