The history of humankind is also a history of technology, for these inventions and machines make our world accessible. We overcome obstacles, travel great distances, and procure food, energy, and all of life’s necessities.
The Mega Building Collection highlights spectacular and pioneering engineering milestones, ranging from the Roman Pont du Gard to the French TGV high-speed train.
Each episode focuses on a specific technical achievement. The series explores gigantic dams, shipping canals, tunnels that burrow for kilometres under mountains and seas, and the Millau Viaduct – the longest cable-stayed bridge in the world. Mega Building Collection provides insights into the construction and operation of these icons of progress.
