Deutsch: Pfeiler, v.a. Brückenpfeiler, Bogenpfeiler oder Wandpfeiler. Siehe auch pillar, was man genauso mit „Pfeiler“ übersetzt, aber damit eher „nichtrunde Säulen“ meint.
English: A pier is an upright support for a structure or superstructure, such as an arch or bridge.
  • The simplest cross section of the pier is square or rectangular, although other shapes like cruciform (cross-shaped) or composite shapes are also common. In medieval architecture massive circular supports called drum piers instead of columns. Sections of wall between openings can function as piers.
