Dr Adrienn Tomor will give a technical talk on digital stone construction.

Stone buildings and bridges have been around for thousands of years and are beacons of long-term sustainability. During the early 1900s concrete and steel became popular and led to the skills and knowledge on stone to die out. With increasing awareness of sustainability, stone is now gaining interest among engineers and architects.

A pioneering construction project in Tanzania has demonstrated the simplicity and efficiency of the technology for new stone bridges. For the UK, traditional skills are now being combined with digital technology to enable wider rollout.

The talk will discuss proposals for a long-term sustainability indicator and the vision for the New Stone Age.
