The Gateway Arch - 2
Taken in 2019 this became an instant favorite among not just St. Louisans but fans of architecture as well.
The monument we know today began in 1935 when President Franklin D. Roosevelt designated property along the St. Louis riverfront to be developed as the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial (now known as Gateway Arch National Park). While the land was cleared for construction, the City of St. Louis deeded the Old Courthouse to the National Park Service to be incorporated into the Memorial.
In 1948, a nationwide design competition determined what shape the Memorial would take, and in 1963, construction began on architect Eero Saarinen's design for a stainless steel arch. Completed in 1965, the Gateway Arch stands as a symbol of national identity and an iconic example of mid-century modern design.

Please Note: Your image is custom printed to Jack's specifications using 100% cotton Hahnemühle paper and archival pigmented inks from the original high-quality digital capture. It will likely take between 14-28 days for your print to arrive. Each print undergoes rigorous quality testing to ensure it is up to archival standards (meaning the prints are crafted to be able to be placed in a museum for many years). Expect closer to 28 days if it was framed, and 14 if it was rolled or matted. Larger prints may require additional time.
