        Saarinen’s St. Louis Gateway Arch, Monument Design, and Westward Expansion

        Explore monument design and Westward Expansion in this video about the St. Louis Gateway Arch. Eero Saarinen’s famous arch sits on the Mississippi River and is considered the “gateway to the West.” Saarinen’s structure commemorates Thomas Jefferson and his efforts to open the West through the Louisiana Purchase and the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Built in the 1960s, the Arch remains the tallest arch in the world.
