DESCRIPTION

For years, skylines have been at the mercy of Mother Nature with tornados, hurricanes, and earthquakes all wreaking havoc on city structures directly in their firing line. No building has been safe… Until now.

Building Invincible goes inside what it takes to not only keep these structures surviving, but thriving in the face of the worst Mother Nature can throw at them. Whether it’s Trump’s new tower or the Miami Marlins’ new stadium, find out what keeps these giants standing.

From a Tornado-proof skyscraper reinforced with enough concrete to fill 57 Olympic-sized pools, to a bridge with shock absorbers so big they can protect against the power of a massive earthquake, explore the most innovative and radical structures modern technology has to offer.
