Summary
Now in paperback, Engineers tells the story of the brilliant minds that have constructed our man-made world, from ancient pyramids to modern spaceflight

Discover the mathematical genius of Archimedes, the elegance of Leonardo da Vinci, and modern pioneers such as Ferdinand Porsche, alongside innovations such as quake-resistant design, the evolution of flight, and the Large Hadron Collider

This full-color book covers more than 100 architects, designers, and engineers in detail, including blueprints of their work, biographical information, and insights into the particular genius of each. Engineers also includes timeline spreads to add context for the groundbreaking -- and sometimes controversial -- projects that made history

With original sketches and drawings as well as contemporary photography, Engineers makes an ideal gift book for artists, architects, scientists, and those who are fascinated by technology.
