Sometimes architects design extraordinary buildings, but in accepting praise for innovation and creativity, especially the case of unusual building forms, the contribution of the building's engineer is forgotten. This book seeks to set the record straight through the examination of some of the most significant engineers working today, together with a selection of the most remarkable recent buildings.

The book focuses on 25 case studies of projects by engineers from around the world, unravelling the relationship of the engineer with the architect in each case. Internationally renowned firms and engineers include Ove Arup, Atelier One, Santiago Calatrava, Dewhurst McFarlane, Anthony Hunt Associates, Techniker and Buro Happold. The book features such high-profile projects as the London Eye Millenium Wheel, the Eden Project in Cornwall, Spandau Station in Berlin and the Tokyo International Forum.
