Nothing is art if doesn’t come from nature-Antony Gaudi


The topic ‘Column’ brought some confusion with another term ‘Pillar’, especially for fellows like me whose

mother tongue is not English.

Are column and pillar same or different?

I am aware of the newspaper column.

I am also aware of the column on a computer spreadsheet.

But structure-wise?

I am not sure.

Readers may help me.

The above image is Giant’s Causeway, a world heritage site located in Northern Ireland.

Notice the interlocking basalt columns.

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

  1. Your fantastic photo answers your question, dear Philo. Even though column and pillar are synonymous, in architecture, pillars are used to support something, while columns could be either supporting or free-standing.
