Stainless Steel in Architectural Applications

Chicago, 23 May 2019 – The International Stainless Steel Forum (ISSF) published a new edition of their architectural brochures during their 23rd conference (ISSF-23) which was held in Chicago on 23 May 2019.

This brochure started its life as an attempt to highlight some selected success stories where stainless steel had been used in architectural applications, in order to inspire to others to enter this exciting market. The brochure has grown in size and quality exponentially as the architects of the world have increasingly taken interest in the potential of stainless steel for their design work.

There are some remarkable structures in this book, which serve to remind me of the words the ISSF Secretary-General wrote for the fourth edition “For me, the milestone achievement over the years since the Millennium has been the amazing growth of the development of stainless steel as an “art meets function” tool in the architectural sector. Our Architectural Brochures series will reveal immediately how the architect, as artist, has used stainless steel creatively to design something which is more than a building, more than a sculpture or more than a structure. And the best thing is that whilst creating a thing of beauty, the designer is adding to the sustainability of our world, because the stainless steel he uses is capable of being 100% recycled when it comes to the end of its useful life, thus adding immeasurably to the value of life on earth.”
