"Great Modern Structures" is a compendium of 75 remarkable engineered structures built between 1900 and the present day. From buildings and bridges to monuments and telecoms towers, the book illustrates the best and most technically challenging work of engineers, builders and architects across the world. Many of the structures are record breakers, while others will have more modest reasons for inclusion, such as sheer inventiveness, complexity and beauty. For every structure featured, the authors explain the particular challenges that went into making it, thus bringing to life the complexities involved in turning a concept into a built reality. Importantly, this book is aimed at a general audience, so it will be accessible and comprehensible to a lay reader. Beautifully illustrated with awe-inspiring photographs, engineering diagrams and blueprints, this book will appeal to all those with an interest in the wonders of science, design and engineering.
