From awe-inspiring skyscrapers designed to be noticed to the impressive engineering of the bridges, tunnels, and energy-generating wind fields, viaducts, and dams for which function is just as important as form, 100 MODERN MARVELS OF THE WORLD displays some of the most fascinating feats of architecture and engineering in the modern world. This volume includes famous landmarks like the Sydney Opera House and the CN Tower, as well as less-visible projects like New York Citys Third Water Tunnel.
