Antique marble columns are the main vertical structure of a building that supports the weight of the object above it. In traditional East Asian wooden buildings, the beams are straight columns, and the column array is responsible for supporting the weight of the beam structure and other parts. Such as eaves, between the main column and the foundation, often built column foundation. In addition, there are other smaller columns, which are not placed on the foundation, but on beams to support the weight of the objects above. Through the beam structure, the weight is transferred to the main column. For example, a gourd or shu pillar supports part of the weight of the eaves on a beam frame.
Columns can be designed to resist lateral forces for wind or seismic engineering purposes. Because of similar stress conditions, other compression members are often referred to as “columns”. A beam or arch is often used to support the upper part of a wall or ceiling. In architecture, “column” refers to such a structural element, which also has a certain proportion and decoration. Columns may also be decorative elements that are not needed in the structure. Many of the columns were jointed, that is, to form part of the wall. A long series of columns connected by a colonnade is called a colonnade. Nowadays, a lot of people like to put a beautifully carved column in their homes. Take a look at our antique marble column.
