28 Innovative Steel Facades

From Monolithic Medical Centers to Ornamental Campus Facades

— October 12, 2015 — Art & Design
From over-the-top steel crystalline structures to wooden structures covered in treated steel panels, there are plenty of examples of steel facades that point to the future of the material in this specific aspect of architectural design.

In addition to being cost efficient, 100% recyclable and easy to install, steel as a building material offers design flexibility and due to its ability to stand up to any weather, are ideal for creating dynamic facades. From structural additions to multifunctional complexes to eco-friendly elements that optimize features such as natural light access, steel facades play various roles.

The Open Courts Sports Complex in Kayseri, Turkey is an example of a particularly geometrical approach to facade designs that inspire awe. Additionally, the Miu Miu Tokyo flagship store boasts a captivating brass-colored steel awning that is sure to entice as many admirers as the luxury wears.
