Due to its distinctive design Corten metal is often used in modern architecture and sculpturing. The traditional yet modern look of corten steel panels lends itself to architectural appliance, in particular cladding and facades. However, it is also seen in landscape designing and contractor clients.
Renowned buildings made from core 10 steel include the courtyard theatre in Stratford as well as the Leeds Broadcasting tower at the Leeds Beckett University. The impressive 70meter high tower was designed in 2009 by award winning Feilden Clegg Bradley to host the faculties of art, environment and technology.
