Corten steel architecture: from the Atacama desert to the hills of California

Corten steel architecture: from the Atacama desert to the hills of California

Corten steel is often chosen to help buildings withstand nature; an arid desert climate in Arizona or a tough mountainside altitude in Arkansas. The low alloy steel is a resilient skin for architecture living under challenging conditions. Corten steel is also chosen to help buildings live alongside nature. The corten develops a healthy patina of colours from a rusty orange burnish to a textured silvery glaze letting it sink in – or stand out.
