Steel Shots: ‘Lunch Atop a Skyscraper’ Sculpture

Lunch atop a SkyscraperThe winning steel sculpture in AISC’s third SteelDay Sculpture Competition - “Lunch Atop a Skyscraper” - designed by Arup San Francisco. 
The five finalists for the third annual SteelDay Sculpture Competition were on display at NASCC: The Steel Conference last week in Toronto, where attendees voted for their favorite. (The only rules for the competition are that entrants must be AISC Full and Associate Members and entries have to fit into a 2-ft x 2-ft x 2-ft box and be made entirely of steel.)
Fourteen sculptures were entered into the competition this year, and the winner is “Lunch Atop a Skyscraper.” Designed by Arup San Francisco, the sculpture is based on the famous photo of ironworkers in 1932 taking a lunchtime break on a steel crossbeam about 850 ft above the streets of NYC at the construction site of the RCA Building (renamed the GE Building in 1986) at Rockefeller Center.

More information about the creation of the winning sculpture will be featured in the May issue of MSC.
