The Gateway Arch was legendary architect Eero Saarinen’s first major commission. Developed with the assistance of structural engineer Hannskarl Bandel, the Arch is constructed of a stainless steel skin covering reinforced concrete nearer the base and carbon steel and rebar higher up. The arch won the AIA’s Twenty-five Year Award in 1990. Saarinen was awarded the Gold Medal posthumously in 1962. Modeled by Crystal V. Olin, form adapted from model by Michael Birdsong. #AIA150 #arch #carbon_steel #catenary_curve #Eero_Saarinen #Gold_Medal #Hannskarl_Bandel #landmark #Missouri #MO #national_monument #rebar #reinforced_concrete #riverfront #spirit #St_Louis #St_Louis_Arch #stainless_steel #The_Gateway_Arch #trams #western_pioneers
