This innovative new book presents the vast historical sweep of engineering innovation and technological change to describe and illustrate engineering design and what conditions, events, cultural climates and personalities have brought it to its present state.

Matthew Wells covers topics based on an examination of paradigm shifts, the contribution of individuals, important structures and influential disasters to show approaches to the modern concept of structure. By demonstrating the historical context of engineering, Wells has created a guide to design like no other, inspirational for both students and practitioners working in the fields of architecture and engineering.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book appears to be an ambitious project. Not only does the author propose a `history of engineering and structural design' from prehistory to present time (2000, p. 5), but he also seeks to contribute to a comprehensive and critical analysis about the way in which engineering and the innovation process have developed all along this time and in different parts of the world. This is a real challenge, to which Matthew Wells successfully responds, due to his comprehensive reading and to his methodological approach." - Elisabeth Campagnac, Construction Management and Economics, July 2012
