Great Building Stories of the Past

Great Building Stories of the Past recounts the fascinating histories of nine of the world's greatest architectural achievements, from the 2.3 million blocks of white limestone used in Egypt's Great Pyramid to Hong Kong's Chek Lap Kok Airport, so vast it can be seen from space. Captivating full-color drawings detailing the idea, construction, and final outcome illustrate the incredible stories of how and why the Great Wall of China was built, the revolutionary building techniques of the Woolworth Building and the Brooklyn Bridge, and how a continent was actually split in two to build the Panama Canal. In Great Building Stories of the Past, these amazing structures and more stand as glorious testaments to humankind's incredible possibilities.
