Visionaries and Unsung Heroes - Engineers - Design - Tomorrow

Author(s): Werner Lang + Cornelia Hellstern + Bill Addis

design & construction | Birkhauser

The exciting and versatile range of activities performed by construction engineers is rarely fully appreciated by the public. Yet as well as being a key industry for the economy, construction is also important for society: Modern life without buildings and infrastructure would be simply inconceivable. With that in mind, this publication presents the engineering profession (and by extension the entire industry) as it really is: Fascinating, creative, diverse and innovative. Engineers and their innovations are presented in the context of their social, economic and political influences. The book combines an historical perspective with a focus on contemporary projects.
