AISC TURNS 100: A Century of Steel

Revisit the 1960s with AISC

As AISC looks forward to the next 100 years of bringing together the structural steel industry, we're also looking back at the decades that defined both AISC and the world in general, starting from the very beginning.

Immerse yourself in the grooviest decade of the twentieth century with AISC's 1960s timeline, featuring the moon landing, countercultural movement, and iconic steel structures like the Space Needle and the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge. You'll find out just how much a new copy of the 6th edition Manual of Steel Construction cost in 1963!

This timeline is part of a yearlong celebration of AISC's centennial and joins a retrospective of historic articles, other interactive timelines, and more.
