Architects, Engineers, Developers and Contractors across the country are taking tilt-up to new levels. They're utilizing this most flexible building system to realize new markets, executing high-end, Class-A finishes and calling on the intrinsic properties of tilt-up to meet increasingly stringent energy codes. Best of all, they're willing to share their experience and expertise with you. The Tilt-Up Concrete Association (TCA) is taking these strategies on the road, hosting a series of tilt-up education/networking events across the country. The first stop in 2018 is St. Louis.

Designed by renowned American architect Cass Gilbert, the Saint Louis Art Museum's original structure was the only building from the World’s Fair designed to be permanent. The 200,000 square foot addition, designed by London architect David Chipperfield, consists of large, clean expanses of glass and monumental planes of highly polished black concrete. The stark contrast created by the simplicity and darkness of the expansion keeps clean the reading of the original building and establishes a somewhat submissive attitude while sustaining its own sense of monumentality.
