This is the first book of a collection of monographic books on the projects of h2o architectes. It showcases the construction of a 32-home building in the 15th arrondissement in Paris that features 24 cm ashlar masonry facades. Requiring neither firing nor the addition of other products, stone material allows a 60% reduction in CO2 in comparison to concrete where the construction phase is concerned, and a 35% reduction over a period of 50 years. h2o architectes successfully demonstrate that load-bearing stone, a geo-sourced material, represents an economical alternative and has the advantage of offering a higher-quality standard of finish.

88 p, ills colour & bw, 17 x 24 cm, pb, French/English
