title Revising Stereotomy through Digital Technology

summary Stereotomy is usually regarded as a classic discipline in the field of architecture which has lost its relevance to other construction methods. Recently we have witnessed approaches to the stereotomic way of building using modern digital technologies, bringing the discipline to the present. On the other hand, the complex shaped buildings being built in the present seem to lack some kind of structure visible in classic stone architectures. A shift in construction methods must be attended to, with its metallic beams and concrete massifs. For an understanding of what remains the same and what changes from the classic literature, this paper tries to create analogies between contemporary architecture surfaces and the discrete stone structures of the past. To achieve this, a concept of stereotomy semantics is introduced, creating a different posture towards the problem of division of surface in architecture.
