Editorial Reviews

Wall Street Journal
Ample text explains the unfamiliar workings of blast furnaces, oil refineries, granite quarries and wind farms. Hundreds of photos provide helpful illustrations. . . . Artistry can be found in the strangest places.— John J Miller
Science
“Will help any technotourist to identify structures commonly encountered (if often overlooked) in outdoor urban habitats and industrial landscapes.”
Wired
When seen through the discriminating lens of author and photographer Brian Hayes, man-made objects appear as exquisite and natural as organic ones. Radar domes echo the beauty of a fly’s eyes, a crop-irrigation rig takes on the twiggy grace of a praying mantis, and the miles of telephone towers and wires along US highways fuse into the western horizon.— Elizabeth Svobada
Grist
Brilliant . . . offering history and context . . . Infrastructure delivers on its promise to be the ‘book of everything’ for our human-made American landscape.— Jim Rossi

    excellent book

    This book is very remarkable. I am waiting for the PBS documentary series based on this work. Shares with everyone the makings of what is the fabric of the modern man made environment. It is an important work I believe because in order to understand where we are going as a global society with environmental renewal, future innovation, etc; We have to know where we have been, and where we are. This book helps you do that....
