People still speak of the Seven Wonders of the World, even though only one of them (the Pyramids) still stands. But the modern world offers architectural and engineering wonders that put ancient efforts to shame. This is a technically detailed compendium of more than 70 of them, from the Millau Viaduct in France (supported by concrete columns taller than the Eiffel Tower) to the 2.5-mile-long Akashi Kaikyo Bridge in Japan. It is a celebration of the superlative-the tallest, widest, and most spectacular feats of modern engineering and architecture.
