ON THE COVER
Built more than a century ago, the Georgia White marble exterior of the Minnesota State Capitol Building was in dire need of a facelift. Through the collaboration of an extensive team of stone experts, the exterior facade was cleaned and repaired over a four-year stretch. The restoration was broken down into five phases, which involved the reproduction of 3,949 custom stone pieces -- each one assigned its own shop ticket and unique number. To learn more about the massive undertaking, turn to the story beginning on page 8.

The portfolio of Robert A.M. Stern, FAIA, who is this yea's honoree of the Bybee Prize, illustrates the New York architect is a proponent of natural stone. For 15 Central Park West -- a mixed-use residential and retail building in Manhattan -- Empire Indiana limestone was selected for the exterior facade because of its warm coloring and to complement existing New York architecture. The traditional masonry expression of the exterior accommodates large windows that, together with projecting bays, French balconies and deep terraces at the setbacks, fill the residences with natural light and open the rooms to views in all directions. Learn more about Stern's philosophies about working with stone beginning on page 12 of this issue of Building Stone Magazine.

Occupying the first 21 levels of “One57” or “The Billionaire’s Building,” as it is popularly known, Park Hyatt’s flagship hotel on West 57th Street in New York City exudes a sophisticated ambiance with an extensive amount of Bianco Piove marble employed throughout its interior design. In the majority of the guestroom bathrooms, the material was used in a standard 12- x 24-inch format for the floor and walls.

School officials enlisted the expertise of a highly trained team of professionals, including an architectural team from HBRA Architects in Chicago, IL, who led the overall design process.

An outdoor retreat for a residence in Colorado was inspired by its sweeping views of the Roaring Fork Valley and Elk Mountain Range.

Colorado Buff sandstone was heavily incorporated into the design &emdash; anchoring it to the land and complementing the surrounding mountainscape. Story begins on page 10.
