Visionaries and Unsung Heroes: Engineers Design Tomorrow
Werner Lang, Cornelia Hellstern
Edition Detail, 2019
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.
