Columns are vertical elements, usually a rounded shaft with a capital and a base, which in most cases serves as a support usually beams or arches. A column may also be non-structural, used for a decorative purpose or as a freestanding monument (pedestals).
In the field of architectural design a column is used for decoration as well as support. Columns may be rectangular, circular, or polygonal in shape; they may taper toward the top (entasis) or be of uniform diameter if required. An engaged, attached, or embedded column is one that is built into a wall and protrudes only partially from it; this type of column is purely decorative and known as a pilaster. Modern columns are simply designed to be made of iron, steel, or concrete and are simply designed.
