A city of ten million, Wuhan is the engineering center of China, a site of remarkable functional architecture on a breathtaking scale. This book features photographs, plans and accounts of major projects found in or originating in Wuhan, along with analyses of twenty-four the most impressive engineering works in China, including the Three Gorges Dam, power plants, tunnels, and bridges. In the process, the book reveals the unique culture of engineering in Wuhan, an approach that refuses to differentiate between the functional and the aesthetic—and that views engineering skill and knowledge as essential for pushing design forward.
