There's a quarter mile stretch of highway in the Netherlands that now features light-absorbing glow-in-the-dark road markings. It's a pilot project that, if proven effective, could dramatically reduce our need for streetlights.
Some of the most famous cities in history were never built. These 10 Utopian cities may have been failures, but they expressed our ideas about what the future of human civilization could look like. And many ideas contained in them continue to influence us today.
People have been obsessively filming bridge collapses for over 70 years. Here is some footage of classic disasters that look like they could have been caused by kaiju.
You hear the phrase "implode" all the time, but what does it really mean? Now you can find out, in this video of a Cal State Hayward building being neatly demolished over the weekend.
There is nothing more awe-inspiring than the sight of a city being built — or destroyed. And that's the point of the photographs in the Engineering News-Record's collection of the best photographs from last year. Check out some incredible shots of enormous machines, magnificent engineering projects, and the people…
Imagine if bridges were made with cement that could repair itself in an earthquake. And ships were coated in a protective shell that could patch itself if damaged by debris. We're closer than you think. Here are two kinds of self-healing materials that could revolutionize the way we build cities and vehicles.
Giant structures reduced to rubble by disaster? You can't look away. Two engineering professors have created a great archive of disaster photos, along with lessons about what went wrong - and how to get it right next time.
