About this book:

Megastructures and Masterminds is a full-colour book that offers a fascinating look into the construction of 33 major structures, including the Huguenot tunnel, the Victoria Falls bridge, Kariba dam, Durban harbour and the Agulhas lighthouse. It also tells the stories of the civil engineers behind these projects, and how through imagination, inspiration, persistence and technical expertise they literally changed the face of the country.
