About Building Stone Magazine

Building Stone Magazine, founded by the Building Stone Institute (BSI) – now the Natural Stone Institute – is the trusted source of natural stone information for architects, landscape architects and interior designers. Now an exclusive, in-house publication of the Natural Stone Institute, Building Stone Magazine’s editorial and visually inspiring photography of stone installations, provide a direct portal of necessary stone awareness and technical resources to benefit the decision makers who impact our built environment.

Natural stone – by definition – is a natural and sustainable building product. Readily desired for its aesthetic beauty, its versatility in use, enduring life cycle, low maintenance and 100% recyclable qualities substantiate natural stone as a preferred green building product. The members of the Natural Stone Institute will communicate through Building Stone Magazine how our industry operates in an environmentally, socially & economically responsible manner to further promote natural stone’s green attributes that extend beyond LEED points recognition. Our goal is to effectively communicate the benefits of natural stone to those who ultimately will make design and product selections that support a healthier, more sustainable environment.


Next Issue:

The next issue of Building Stone Magazine will be distributed in Spring 2023. Highlights include:

  • The Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids, Michigan, is home to an immersive experience that defines the perimeter of an interior gallery. ”Utopia” features Blanc Absolute marble cladding as floor-to-ceiling sculptural reliefs of four ethnic faces of different women from around the world. The stone sculpture’s exacting design required precision engineering and innovation with every solution.
  • The new Leonildo Pieropan winery in Soave, Italy is a dialogue between history and landscape, between contemporary forms, innovative technological solutions, and traditional materials. The resulting structure of the winery develops mostly underground. Local Giallo Dorato limestone with its inherent fossils of coral and shells suggests a connection of the cladding to the seas that previously existed on the site 40 million years before.
  • In the 1960s, New York’s Pennsylvania Station was demolished and what remained was confusing, cramped, and crowded. Utilizing the adjacent historic James A. Farley Post Office building, an ambitious transformation into the new Moynihan Train Hall began in 2018, restoring grandeur of rail travel to the city’s newest grand civic icon.
  • Green-washing is an unfortunate practice where building material manufacturers misrepresent their products in marketing collateral which causes confusion in the market. We uncover the facts.
