The world is full of extraordinary buildings that soar and inspire; monumental marvels that have become, over time, cornerstones of our heritage and culture. The Great Pyramid of Giza, Angkor Wat, Stonehenge, The Acropolis, The Colosseum, The Lost City of Petra, The Forbidden City, Red Square, Buckingham Palace, The Eiffel Tower, Burj Khalifa, The Sydney Opera House, The White House and more.
Over the course of six episodes we circle the globe, exploring the World’s Greatest Engineering Icons: places that honour the sacred, buildings that reach for the sky, fairytale castles, lavish royal palaces, built environments that allow whole communities to thrive and structures that represent power. Ten to fifteen unique buildings feature in every episode. Powerful imagery and narratives that closely follow the course of history allow us to explore the artistry, ingenuity, engineering and technology behind humanity’s greatest architectural accomplishments: the structures that define who we are, what we believe in and all we aspire to achieve.
