Summary
New Zealand's number-eight wire mentality has brought about some incredible engineering solutions to create structures and systems to wonder at, from the Manapouri underground power station to Burt Munro's famous Indian motorcycle. Who designed these amazing things? How were they built? What innovative solutions did the engineers use to overcome problems of terrain, weather, materials and cost? From early Maori and European settlement through the boom days of the late 1900s into the Depression, projects of the early twentieth century and on to the Think Big years, Big ideas : 100 wonders of New Zealand engineering features 100 projects from around the country with informative text, fact boxes and historic photographs. This is a great book to dip into or read from cover to cover, showing the development of New Zealand's fascinating engineering heritage
