As I said, these KS5 flanking pillars look primarily decorative, not structural. That would give some context to how they might be used in a diorama. I doubt any race, magical or not, would build stone walls so poorly that they require lateral structural supports every 10 feet when they're not even supporting a roof.

Then again, any magical/technological race that has the ability to manipulate gravity would not be hampered by their building patterns at all.

Yeah, other mythical and magical races have some very strange ideas about architecture... what were they thinking? ;-) We will never be able to ask them so we will never know, I guess.

An arch piece that is somehow suspended between two pillars, but doesn't seem to actually rest on anything.

I guess it depends on what's supposed to be above the arch, and how well that particular wall is integrated into the rest of the structure.

If we don't assume that the stonework itself supports anything above it, then the pillars (and arches) would be the support elements for the structure(s) above. This would only happen in a structure that was designed level by level, rather than as a single multilevel unit, maybe because additional levels were added over time.

It may be that the pillars and arches don't hold anything up, they might have been added to keep the stonework from falling inward. The lower ranks are kept in place by weight, but the upper ranks had a tendency lean out and take the wall with it.

Or maybe they just look cool.

don't get me wrong, i like it and i will participate in KS5, however, from an architectural standpoint i'm a little confused. first a wall is built from cut stone, then pillars are added, then a arch is put in with some kind of filler maybe even a large cut stone arch piece?

That's a great comparison picture. I can easily imagine mixing the two styles, with the pillared stuff in fancier settings. I hope that a KS3 corner and wall are released that match the pillar style. That would be the proverbial "bees knees".

This popped up on my FB feed. Is it old resin stuff or new beans?

There seems to be a small security leak.
