Titanium Art/Architecture

Titanium spontaneously forms a hard protective oxide film upon contact with any oxygen. It’s this film that gives the metal its trademark shine and shimmer, with variations in the film’s thickness affecting the color that the metal projects. It also has remarkable elasticity, making it the metal of choice for artistic and architectural structures.  For instance, the 40 m (131 foot) memorial to Yuri Gagarin (the first man to travel in space) in Moscow, is made of titanium for the metal's attractive color and association with rocketry. The Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao is sheathed in titanium panels. It can also be used to help structural repair of historic buildings. Titanium was used as a part of the 2008 structural repair and stabilization for the Leaning tower of Pisa in Italy.

The artist who chose Titanium for the Olympic Torch Cauldron said he chose the metal for two reasons its modern image of superior technology and its beautiful colors when heat treated.

Ti donated the titanium panels that were used in a 9-11 Memorial Monument to commemorate all those who lost their lives in the Twin Towers tragedy.
