Superstructures: Engineering Marvels

Superstructures: Engineering Marvels reveals the extraordinary feats of engineering that are hidden within the world’s most spectacular man-made constructions. In each episode, we strip one construction down layer by layer using cutting edge CGI. Each time a layer is removed, a game changing innovation is revealed. Giant planes, skyscrapers, ships or dams are all given the same treatment but it’s only when the construction is reduced to a skeleton that exposes its core that we fully understand it and appreciate what makes it unique. Insights from world class engineers, architects, and construction teams complete this lavishly illustrated and factually rich programme.
