Transcript of WORLD'S FAMOUS PARABOLIC ARCHES

“The Golden Arches”
The business began in 1940, with a restaurant opened by brothers Richard and Maurice McDonald in San Bernardino, California. The company began as a barbecue restaurant and in 1948, they reorganized their business specifically as a hamburger stand selling burgers for 15 cents. Their initial drem was to reinvent the term “Fast food, Fast service.” that white castle had created two decades earlier. However, Richard and Maurice were not necessariliy the creators of the idea and dream.



"Twin Arch 138"
(138 meters)
"Hulme Arch Bridge"
The Hulme Arch Bridge in Hulme, Manchester, England, supports Stretford Road as it passes over Princess Road, and is located at grid reference SJ838968. The construction of the bridge formed part of the regeneration of the Hulme district of Manchester, both by re-establishing the former route of Stretford Road, which had been cut into two halves by the construction of Princess Road in 1969, and by providing a local landmark. The location was previously occupied by a footbridge.

"Theme Building"
The Theme Building is an iconic landmark structure at the Los Angeles International Airport within the Westchester neighborhood of the city of Los Angeles. It opened in 1961, and it is an example of the Mid-Century modern influenced design school known as "Googie" or "Populuxe." The distinctive white building resembles a flying saucer that has landed on its four legs. It was designed by a team of architects and engineers headed by William Pereira and Charles Luckman, that also included Paul Williams and Welton Becket. The initial design of the building was created by James Langenheim, of Pereira & Luckman.

The Gateway Arch is a 630-foot (192 m) tall monument in St. Louis, in the U.S. state of Missouri. Clad in stainless steel and built in the form of a flattened catenary arch, it is the tallest man-made monument in the Western Hemisphere,Missouri's tallest accessible building, and the world's tallest arch.Built as a monument to the westward expansion of the United States, it is the centerpiece of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial and has become an internationally famous symbol of St. Louis.
Two arches of different heights in a hyperbolic curve with the elevator shaft in the middle symbolize the “magnificent flow of water in Kiso Three Rivers". The tower stands in Ichinomiya City. Since Ichinomiya sounds like 138 in Japanese, the height of the tower was determined to be 138 meters.
Twin Arch 138 is Japan's first arch-type tower and is tallest of its kind in the East. Two high-speed elevators take the visitors to the observation platform at 100 above the ground in 70 seconds
