A stunning new information book from best-selling author/illustrator Peter Kent, that presents some of the most spectacular and challenging building projects in history. From the ancient Egyptians, through the medieval cathedral-builders, the makers of the first suspension bridges and skyscrapers, to the complexities of a modern airport, the book traces the ways in which we have learnt to build ever more complex structures.Behind each project there is a story, of individuals determined to turn their vision into reality. These stories of enormous human ingenuity and struggle, and often of heroism too.
