Architecture has advanced quickly in the field of construction materials, which are fundamental when fulfilling dreams of raising massive buildings. Amongst these materials that have had the biggest influence in the creation of this kind of architecture is steel. As a result of a carbon-alloy, steel is ductile but at the same time resistant and tough. Today it is not only present in the structure of all types of buildings, but also used in designs for household objects and plays a major role in avant-garde interior design. On the basis of about 40 projects this book shows how multifariously steel can be leveraged. Plans of the projects will be shown as far as available. An index of contact information of the designer and architects is enclosed.
