Modern Marvels: St. Louis Arch

It is a majestic structure anchored in Missouri's Jefferson National Expansion Memorial, rising boldly over the great Mississippi river.

At 630 feet tall, the Gateway Arch, commonly referred to as the St. Louis Arch, is the tallest national monument in the United States. Completed in 1967, despite many pitfalls encountered along the way and the dangers involved in its construction, the arch's deceptively simple design resulted in a breathtaking commemoration of America's expansion westward. Designed by Finnish architect Eero Saarinen, the arch's unique orthotropic plan made it possible to create two stairways and a revolutionary tram system inside, allowing visitors to enjoy the spectacular view from the apex of the arch.

From its inception in the 1930s to its long-awaited completion, Modern Marvels reveals the innovation and ingenuity involved in creating the largest man-made arch in the world.
