STAIR VAULT * 228
Construction: Subsidiary details Menu Prev Next
Problem
Within a building technology which uses compressive materials as much as possible, and excludes the use of wood, it is natural to build stairs over a vaulted void, simply to save weight and materials.
Solution
Build a curved diagonal vault in the same way that you build your FLOOR-CEILING VAULTS (219). Once the vault hardens, cover it with steps of lightweight concrete, trowel-formed into position.
