Stainless steel is used in a unique manner at the Miura Hotel by featuring a 30 feet high statue of a man pressing against the property.

There are hotels worldwide that choose to use stainless steel to highlight specific aspects of the structures for interior and external features.  Today I am going to share with you two examples of how stainless steel is used in the utmost highly acclaimed hotels located across the globe.  Let’s start this list with an infamous brand name chain that originated in the USA, Trump International Hotel & Tower®.

Trump seems to own everything.  There is no denying that.  You see him on ads, hosting television shows and his name brand extends to clothing and jewelry lines too but his most prominent founding arena of success stems from his residential and commercial property dealings.

Trump International Hotel & Tower® Chicago is sample of Donald Trump’s legacy and his use of stainless steel for the design and structure of this hotel is remarkable.

Stainless steel and glass adorn this impressive 1,389 feet height hotel.  It has a breathtaking peak that tops out at 1,170 feet.  The stainless steel incorporated in the building is not assigned to one part of the exterior or interior.  It is actually utilized throughout the property.  For instance, there are approximately 45,000 tons of steel bars reinforcing the support of the hotel.  There are bowed, polished stainless steel pieces created to form a division between units of the windows extending beyond 9 inches from the glass line.  Smart applications of this metal are uncovered throughout the property.

Another structure that features stainless steel is the Miura hotel in Czech Republic.   This hotel used the metal in a unique manner by incorporating a 30 feet high stainless steel man pressing against the outside of the hotel.  It is a sculptor created by the artist David Černý who is notorious for his large-scale installations.

On the left is the "Spirit of Light" and on the right is Perre’s Ventaglio III.

Many cities around the world choose to display stainless steel sculptures for many reasons. One, there is virtually no need for any special care or cleaning instructions to follow keeping city maintenance costs down.  Also, these works of art make a statement. They are available in a public setting encouraging the masses to interact, admire and enjoy different infamous pieces of art.   Here are two global steel sculptures that stand out to me.

Let’s Take a Look at the Olympic Sculpture Park

The Seattle Art Museum Olympic Park is an impressive, free entry, nine acre open space designed to exhibit art.  One of the sculptures that stands out the most is Perre’s Ventaglio III.

In 1967, Perre’s Ventaglio III was created by the artist Beverly Pepper.   The artist was known for her colossal works of art and this particular piece is no exception.  It is a massive, outdoor, large scale steel structure created out of four cubic forms.  It displays an interesting geometric shape with reflections of the sky and its surroundings, which are visible upon the highly reflective material of the sculpture itself emitting an intended optical illusion.

Introducing the Spirit of Light

At the base of the Nigara Mohawk Building in Syracuse New York is a stainless steel sculpture called Spirit of Light.  Spirit of Light is a 28 foot high statue of a male figure with arms extended from which rays of light look similar to sporting giant wings.
