Column
Column or pillar in architecture and structural engineering is a structural element that transmits, through compression, the weight of the structure above to other structural elements below. In other words, a column is a compression member. The term column applies especially to a large round support with a capital and base and made of stone, or appearing to be so. A small wooden or metal support is typically called a post, and supports with a rectangular or other non-round section are usually called piers. For the purpose of wind or earthquake engineering, columns may be designed to resist lateral forces. Other compression members are often termed "columns" because of the similar stress conditions. Columns are frequently used to support beams or arches on which the upper parts of walls or ceilings rest. In architecture, "column" refers to such a structural element that also has certain proportional and decorative features. A column might also be a decorative element not needed for structural purposes; many columns are "engaged", that is to say form part of a wall.

Columna (arquitectura)
Una columna es un elemento arquitectónico vertical y de forma alargada que normalmente tiene funciones estructurales, aunque también pueden erigirse con fines decorativos. De ordinario, su sección es circular, pues cuando es cuadrangular suele denominarse pilar, o pilastra si está adosada a un muro. La columna clásica está formada por tres elementos: basafuste y capitel.
