Its not like we need another reason to appreciate that the ancient romans were the best engineers in the history of mankind. Ok. We’re prone to hyperbole when we see structures lasting over 2000 years. These engineers worked without the benefit of science, of recorded data, of a network of individuals that could communicate what […]

Here is a great Civil engineering lessons learned infographic generated by the folks over at the Russ College of Engineering at Ohio University. This is very well done piece of work! You can find the original page here.
…is not only a metaphor here, it’s a reality that connects communities. This is the stuff that excites us like no other. Practical engineering, real architecture. The whole community coming together to make the raw materials, and build something that they find useful, and it is a labor of love. It’s a beautiful sight. We […]
Los Angeles’ Sixth Street Viaduct/Bridge was first introduced to us in Grand Theft Auto. While it’s not the George Washington, or Brooklyn Bridge, it is one rife with history, mostly cinematic history. It’s a place all very familiar to us from the movies. The bridge is degrading because of the alkali silica reaction from using […]
As far as technology goes, just think about where we were last last year, five years ago, (the first iPad hadn’t been released yet), ten years ago, you may have been thinking of upgrading to Windows XP. If you think about elevators, they haven’t changed much in the last 25 years. Welcome to the future! These […]
This is an amazing prospect for low income housing, planning, engineering, and construction. Our minds are blown to be able to build a home with one 3D printer. http://www.businessinsider.com/3d-printed-houses-are-here-2014-9
