What Happens When an Architecture Student Learns About Steel Design

It’s almost the same reaction when engineers encounter steel design.


What do we get from an architecture student taking the Steel 401 subject who gets bored and has an audio recorder and a handy camera? Apparently, a song inspired by the complexities of designing steel structures, and a recording of herself singing that song around the city with steel components.

Perhaps the song is not as annoying as it sounds before you can even hear it, because it stings our minds a little especially for those who are no longer in touch of the bible of construction steel, the American Institute of Steel Construction. The song mentions wide-flanges and beam moment capacity, which, for a civil engineer, recall a nightmare when we were studying them in college but  no longer deal with them in the field.

But nonetheless, this piece written, directed and performed by the then-student in 2008 Klaudia Siczek called ‘Come Steel With Me,” is worth the two minutes of your life.
