Steel is the obvious choice of materials for industrial buildings, even more so if it is to be housing steel elements. So when steel maker ArcelorMittal was planning a new warehouse building in the port of Aviles in Spain, in front of its works, there was little discussion about the selection of materials.

On a misty day in Rotterdam, the taller of the two towers that make up the Maas Tower development seems to disappear into the sky. Oddly, on a clear day, the effect is not entirely different. Although the light silvery colour of the tower stands out sharply against a blue sky, there is a fading away at the top that cannot just be put down to the diminution that comes with distance.
