By Roma Agrawal, illustrated by Katie Hickey.
From skyscrapers that reach astonishing heights to bridges that stretch across vast rivers, the world is filled with awe-inspiring structures. But how were they built?
Discover the innovations that paved the way for 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. Meet people who dared to build underground, underwater, on ice, and even in space. Explore the principles that keep a structure tall, strong, and stable through unimaginably harsh conditions.
With accessible text written by award-winning structural engineer Roma Agrawal and engrossing illustrations by Katie Hickey, this book dissects the world's most incredible constructions and celebrates the dreamers, thinkers, and builders who made them a reality.
