Editorial Reviews

Since the dawn of civilization, complex building projects have differentiated humanity from the globe’s other inhabitants. The first of these structures were purely functional in character—scarcely different from beaver dams or bird nests—but, gradually, an element of pride and one-upsmanship seeped into the matrix, laying the foundations of an architectural epic that persists to this day. The story really kicked into high gear during the 19th century, with the advent of the Industrial Revolution. Super Structures explores some of the greatest engineering feats of the Modern Era, as the human imagination has extended its transformative reach from the Continental Shelf beneath the English Channel to the void of space. This extraordinary 5-DVD set will please cultural historians and technological enthusiasts alike!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! July 8, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Had another dvd on the airport built on man made island, but this is the dvd that explains how they handled the issue of the island sinking as they were building the airport. Only reason I got this dvd was for that, but have been watching the other shows on it also and they are wonderful. This is a great one for showing things that just do not seem possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic information at a bargain price. March 21, 2013
By jadams
Format:DVD
I have owned this set of DVDs for some time and it is one of my favorites. I have bought others(concerning engineering on large projects) that are good but none equal to the information and the bargain prices for this set. I consider this excellent information and entertainment for those who want to know how that great project was accomplished...I cant imagine anyone not enjoying this...and it is many hours of interesting entertainment. This is also a great gift for a guy that likes building things.Bought seperately, I would think this would compete with other products valued at $50 to $100.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring and deflating February 18, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If anyone wants to feel puny and insignificant view Super Structures in its entirety. The men who conceive and build these super structures are, in a way, supermen-and women.

In my mind's eye, I am humbled by these persons who think big and who are not intimidated by the projects they undertake. They don't win Oscars, they don't wear super bowl rings, and they don't have the papparazzi following them.
They only have the sublime satisfaction of their achievements.
