Smithsonian Meets Incredible Buildings

Friday, January 8th, 2021

From an underground luxury hotel built in an abandoned quarry in China, to a deliberately bendy copper-covered Manhattan skyscraper, to the £1 billion refurbishment of London Bridge Station and an amazing sky garden in Singapore, this 8-part series celebrates some of the most incredible feats of engineering that beg the question: How Did They Build That? (Mondays from January 11th at 8pm). Travelling across the world in search of the answers, we meet the people who designed and built them and reveal the extraordinary modern engineering secrets that made these modern wonders possible.

Witness the Millau Viaduct in France, and the Halley VI Antarctic Research Station in Antarctica which is designed to overcome the challenges of building on a floating ice shelf. Beautiful, audacious and extraordinary, this is engineering on a scale and complexity never seen before. And this engineering is guaranteed to take your breath away.
