Steel's past production of the country's most noted steel spans, and the future of the site as a revitalized cultural mecca." A Destination Spot Some fire displays are created to draw at- tention and attract people to a specific lo- cation. For instance, one feature that has become a destination site for photographs is the Cabo Twist, more commonly known as the Branch Twist. It is a fire and water sculp - ture designed for the Auberge Esperanza Re- sort in Cabo San Lucas. Situated on a terrace overlooking the Sea of Cortez, the location has become a popular place for people to gather and take photos at sunset. The burner is mounted to a central hub, which has a two-framed structural steel base with the sculpture built around it. A hidden door is built into the branches in order to service the burner and ignition system. Co - lombo says, "the sculptural aspect protects people from the flame, so it kind of encloses the flame but you can still see it." The Twist Branch has become an admired feature with the tallest one to date located in Washing - ton, at a height of 15 feet.
