Artist's Description

St. Louis, Missouri USA
The Jefferson National Expansion Memorial encompasses the Gateway Arch, and the surrounding National Park in forty square blocks of the St. Louis, Missouri waterfront that was built to commemorate the westward expansion of the United States. The winning monument design was decided by a national competition. An architect: Eero Saarinen won the achitectual competition, he said: “Neither an obelisk nor a rectangular box nor a dome seemed right on this site or for this purpose. But here, at the edge of the Mississippi River, a great arch seemed right”. The Gateway Arch, a classic weighted catenary curve, his Improbable Dream, stands here today.
