The St. Louis Arch is celebrating its 50th anniversary this week. I have only visited the landmark once, but I was impressed by the structure and the sheet metal forming it took to make it.
I’ve become a lot more cognizant of sheet metal works in my daily life since I started working on SNIPS years ago.
The great thing about these types of projects is they’re an opportunity for workers to really show off their sheet metal forming skills. They’re also the kind of projects I love to profile in SNIPS. I still remember writing about a reader who worked on the Statue of Liberty in the 1990s.
Have any of you worked on anything you’d consider a major landmark? Tell me about it.
