Episode 1: Cantilevers & Lifts

Summary

An investigation into the greatest man-made structures of all time, exploring how new materials and construction techniques have allowed engineers, builders, and architects to work to the limits of their ability. This episode focuses on a New York skyscraper that seems to defy the laws of physics, the world's tallest outdoor lift built on the side of a Chinese mountain and a building that mimics a ship at sea.
