Magnificent Metal Mondays

Another episode of Magnificent Metal Mondays is upon us and today we travel to Lubbock, Texas. Yes you guessed it The Steel House designed by steel sculptor Robert Bruno.

Bruno created this structure because he began to imagine what it would be like to live in one of these steel homes. At the time he had been studying quonset huts and the rounded shape inspired the dome and foundation of the building. The rest of the building was then constructed from 110 tons of steel.
