A pillar is the vertical load-bearing element of an architectural structure that transfers loads form the structure to the underlying structures aimed at receiving it. It may have a squared, rectangular, polygonal or more complex cross-section and constant or variable shape and/or size. In the latter case, it is known as tapered pillar. The pillar is usually provided with brackets and/or capitals casted together with the element in the event of a standard configuration or applied subsequently in special cases.
