THE ROLE OF FORGED METALWORK IN ARCHITECTURE HAS VARIED OVER THE CENTURIES—FROM THE DRAMATIC AND WHIMSICAL DEMONSTRATED IN THE ARCHITECTURE OF GAUDI AND HORTA, TO THE SERIOUS AND WEIGHTY EXAMPLES WITNESSED IN COUNTLESS CATHEDRALS AND CASTLES. 

METALWORK HAS ALSO SHOWN A CAPABILITY TO BE LIGHT AND AIRY, DUE TO ITS STRENGTH IN A DIVERSITY OF ARCHITECTURAL SITUATIONS.

IN TODAY'S MODERN AND TRANSITIONAL INTERIORS, IT CAN ADD TEXTURE AND A SENSE OF CRAFT THROUGH SCULPTURE, FURNITURE, OR ARCHITECTURAL PIECES SUCH AS RAILINGS,
ROOM DIVIDERS AND LIGHTING.
