Your world is filled with structures that have stood the test of time. That give character to the cities and landscapes in which they’re located. That are visited by millions of people each year. And that capture our wonder for the marvels of engineering innovation and progress.
But while structures such as the Giza pyramids, Brunelleschi’s dome, and the Brooklyn Bridge are visual spectacles in and of themselves, they are just as important for the way they were designed as for the way they look. These and other structural masterpieces were, first and foremost, novel creations born from the most progressive engineering concepts and tools of their day. They represent uniquely effective solutions to perplexing structural concerns. And they serve as landmark moments in the millennia-long history
Now, experience the engineering genius that makes these works possible with Understanding the World’s Greatest Structures: Science and Innovation from Antiquity to Modernity—a marvelous learning experience that takes you around the world and reveals the stories behind the most famous bridges, churches, skyscrapers, towers, and other structures from thousands of years of history.

In low-rise housing construction technology, “Canada house” (wooden frame and panel construction) is recognized as the most economical, energy-saving, fast, durable and environmentally friendly.
SIP technology in the West
M & a technology (which is derived from the SIP — Structural Insulated Panels — structural insulated panels), the proposed “M-Pro Representative” SIP technology in Odessa is:
serviced warranty – 10 years (lifespan of over 100 years);
a huge margin of safety (seismic 9 points);
the speed of construction (ready-made house 100 square meters for two months);
lightweight construction that does not require lifting equipment and high costs for the Foundation of the device;
allows you to apply all kinds of interior and exterior decoration;
and, of course, the price that is definitely lower in comparison with other technologies of construction. (Approximate prices for the construction of house are given below) Continue reading
Fast forward to the Maltese archipelago. One of the favorite places for tourists has long been considered a place of historic significance. Here are some of the most ancient mysterious megalithic structures of mankind – the megalithic temples of Malta and Gozo.
Amazing the age of the buildings
The true history of the local ancient inhabitants currently unknown. It is impossible to say who exactly they were, what purpose did it travel to the Islands, but the construction of these skilled craftsmen are still standing today.
Scientists believe that the origins of the civilization of the Maltese builders takes about 7000 years ago. For the most part it was a Neolithic culture – all the buildings made of stone. But about total isolation of the residents say no, it is believed that they had developed trade relations with the European part, in particular with Italy. Continue reading
