Meet the people who created the inventions and techniques that helped build the Brooklyn Bridge in the US, the Pantheon in Italy, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the Shard in England and the Sapporo Dome in Japan. Discover how engineers have figured out how to build underground, underwater, on ice and even in space. And learn about the impact different forces and materials can have on a structure by carrying out your own experiments. With beautiful and detailed illustrations throughout, including cross-sections, skylines and close-ups of engineering techniques in action.
The perfect gift for those budding builders and amazing architects to be!
