Summary
This documentary chronicles the history of westward expansion and the construction of the largest stainless steel structure ever built, the Gateway Arch. Featured are newly discovered construction footage, rare photographs of westward expansion, early conceptual drawings by architect Eero Saarinen, and music by award-winning composer Tim Janis. Dozens of interviews include World Trade Center Master Plan architect Daniel Libeskind and architecture critic Jayne Merkel, along with the workers who built the monument that some said was impossible to build
