Abstract

The aim of this action research project is to (re)define and (re)get to know the material trachyandesite. A magmatic rock that has contributed to the identity of the Massif Central region, through the construction of towns since the 15th century, its exploitation has accelerated with industrial growth. Its presence grew and its uses spread throughout France. If this stone confers a specific and visual identity, it is today one of the components of the built heritage of a French region, at one with the landscape because it is at its heart. Understanding the materiality of this stone and its many characteristics is a key factor in the restoration of old buildings. Could knowledge of the qualities of trachyandesite (refractory stone, high pyroscopic resistance) as a local, low-carbon-emission material enhance the value of constructions and/or restorations that could be described as geosourced?
