Structures: The Way Things Are Built by Nigel Hawkes

From the ancient to the modern, from the bizarre to the noble, the world's man-made structures stand as unsurpassed examples of the ingenuity and muscle required to transform a vision into miraculous reality. Structures pays tribute to these awe-inspiring feats of human creation. Here from every continent are the superlative achievements of architecture and engineering: the largest, longest, highest, most massive, and most ambitious structures ever made by human hands. Their origins, design, and construction are recounted in entertaining and informative text and illuminated with a wealth of photoraphs, working diagrams, cutaway drawings, and etchings that bring the work to life. Structures is both an anatomy and a celebration of the triumphant alliance of human technology and human spirit.
