who built that? bridges

It's amazing to consider the significant role bridges play in connecting people.  They are part of what makes travel possible.  In the third installment of the Who Built That? series published by Princeton Architecture Press, designer/illustrator Didier Cornille explores ten of the world’s most important bridges including the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City, the Iron Bridge in Shropshire, the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco and the Peace Bridge in Calgary.  He introduces the engineers and architects behind these innovative structures and their main design and engineering concepts.  He also includes the bridges' narratives—some history, background and stories about the building process—which are fascinating and make for a more meaningful experience for the reader.
