Express Your Love with Steel

Need a gift idea for Valentine's Day? How about a quick trip to visit an iconic building or sculpture that was made from steel and built for love? Check out these romantic, steel structures:

Eiffel Tower
Located in the romantic city of Paris, this 1,063-foot tall building is made from 7,000 tons of steel. In 2007, an American woman named Erika Eiffel famously 'married; the Eiffel Tower in a commitment ceremony.

Made of COR-TEN steel, the pop art sculpture by American artist Robert Indiana has been reproduced in several formats. The original has been on exhibit at the Indianapolis Museum of Art since 1970. 

Boldt Castle
Multi-millionaire George C. Boldt built the 120-room castle as a testimony of love for his wife, Louise. Located on appropriately named Heart Island in New York, the mansion features steel and concrete roofs and floors to provide fireproof construction.

A member of the Texas Iron & Metal team, Andres recently completed the Chevron Houston Marathon. 'My father is a veteran, and I've watched him run marathons since I was knee-high,' Andres said. 

When his father decided that the Houston Marathon would be his 17th — and last — marathon ever, Andres decided to join him. 'It was challenging, but very rewarding,' Andres said.

Congratulations to Andres and his family on their accomplishment!
