Grand Visions showcases how the spirit of yearning has manifested in some of the most spectacular successes (and failures) of engineering and constructions in the annals of human endeavour.

This book is about BIG thinking and BIG dreaming. Grand Visions features mankind's best; from buildings and monuments to cities and ships. All the visions were chosen because they were conceived, designed and executed by one person or one group of people; represented a significant investment and came at a high cost to the people involved, and demonstrated a significant originality and investion. All visions have broken new ground. This is the must have almanac to the best known icons of the world.
