Editorial Reviews

Extreme Engineering unveils some of the most ambitious architectural plans of our times. Some are theoretical; others are in the works. But all of these modern marvels pose challenges that stretch the definition of what's possible. Watch as jaw-dropping computer animation and first-hand accounts from builders, designers and engineers breathe life into the most extreme construction projects ever conceived. Episode 6: The tallest skyscraper in Spain is now under construction in Madrid! The 700 foot tall Torre del Espacio (Space Tower) is an insane piece of engineering, unlike any other tall building. It's the only skyscraper in the world where every single floor plan is completely different -- a design feature dictated by the crazy, spiraling shape of the structure. The bizarre form makes building this thing a nightmare! Unlike run-of-the-mill skyscrapers, building a floor can't be accomplished with traditional construction techniques. Nothing is rectangular, Support columns tilt at weird angles and the concrete forms used to layout each floor constantly change as the building rises. And the kicker is --when a floor is done, there's no easy way to judge if it's been properly built. Only when the emerging shape of the rising building becomes clear will the men know if they've made an error -- and by then, it may be too late to do anything about it.
