Gateway Arch is a landmark and tourist attraction of St. Louis. The 190-meter monument was constructed in 1963 and completed in 1965. It was designed by Eero Saarinen, a Finnish-American architect, in 1947. The Arch was opened to the public on June 10, 1967. It is located at the site where the city was first founded on 100 Washington Avenue. Known as "The Gateway to the West," it is the centerpiece of Gateway Arch National Park and has been dedicated to "the American people." The arch is clad in stainless steel and was built in the form of a weighted catenary arch of the Structural Expressionism architectural style. It was built as a monument symbolizing the westward expansion of the U.S. Today, the arch is an internationally known symbol of St. Louis, the tallest man-made monument in the Western Hemisphere and the tallest arch in the world.
