AISC TURNS 100: A Century of Steel

AISC Revisits the 1970s

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.

Dive into the disco era with AISC's 1970s timeline! While the Vietnam War ended and the environmental movement picked up speed, structural steel also adapted with the times. Click through the timeline to learn about iconic structures like the Willis Tower and Fremont Bridge, as well as the masterminds behind hip-hop music and Star Wars.

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