Aninterlocking lattice of steel beams and rebar has earned one photographer aplace in the new edition of the BSSA’s popular publication Understanding StainlessSteel.

The BSSA -which represents the British stainless steel market – has been working on arevised version of its publication, compiled by technical advisor AlanHarrison.

As part ofthe editing process, it launched a photography contest, with winning entrantshaving their image featured in the centenary edition of Understanding StainlessSteel.

Chosen inearly November, the winning image pictures 200 tonnes of steel beams andstainless rebar in place, photographed with what appears to be a fish-eyeeffect that gives a greater impression of the scale of the project depicted.

Furthercommendations were given to images of stainless steel used for sculpturalbuilding adornments, and a close-up of steel bars on Imperial College London.

Manchester’sBDP Studio appears in one of the commended images too, with its external steelwalls creating a striking feature on the city’s landscape.

The notesthat accompany the photograph point out that BDP Studio is the city’s firstnaturally ventilated building to have been granted an ‘excellent’ rating underthe BREEAM environmental assessment method.
