US magazine. Building Stone Magazine, founded by the Building Stone Institute (BSI) – now the MIA+BSI: Natural Stone Institute – is the trusted source of natural stone information for architects, landscape architects, interior designers and consumers alike. Through editorial and visually inspiring photography of stone installations, Building Stone Magazine provides 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. 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.
