Stainless steel has been used in architecture, building and construction since its invention. Iconic architectural projects like the Chrysler (1930) and Empire State Buildings (1931) featured in Lasting Landmarks (Nickel Magazine, Oct. 2008) exemplify its durability and lasting beauty. Nickel stainless steels’ broad range of finishes provide tremendous design flexibility to high profile projects while their strength and resistance to corrosion, wear and fire make them a practical long lasting choice for public and industrial buildings.
Nickel stainless steels are being used for structural applications ranging from cutting edge architecture to infrastructure. Exceptional structural historical examples include the stainless steel concrete reinforcing bar in Yucatan, Mexico’s Progreso Pier (1945); St. Louis, USA’s Gateway Arch (1965); and the Louvre Pyramid in Paris, France (1989).
