Steel is a high tensile alloy of iron, carbon and other elements formed with heat that has been used in buildings as well as to make weapons since 1800 BC. Steel has provided us with the ability to create structures that are slim and elegant. It also makes our buildings and elements appear weightless while being super strong and resilient. We enjoy combining steel with glass, concrete or stone and have come to understand how to use them in balance to achieve results of great aesthetic value.
