[edit] Information

Bridging The Expanse: Series 1 Bridging The Expanse celebrates the world’s most iconic bridges, exploring feats of engineering.

[edit] The Wonder of Bridges

From the first log thrust over a divide, bridges have united us, facilitating our need to explore and our desire to extend our mastery of physics. In this episode, we look at bridges built by pre-industrial societies around the globe.

[edit] The Elegance of Iron

New materials spark evolution for bridge design throughout the Industrial Revolution; as societies shifted away from agrarian lifestyles, towards industrial economies. It's all about iron and steel and the building of railways.

[edit] Baring all in Steel

The bridge-building boom continues worldwide, with young engineers striving to innovate with bold, structures made with shiny new metal. Undeterred by the Great Depression large infrastructure projects keep economies going

[edit] The Making and Breaking of Icons

Amidst WW2, battles were fought and won for bridges. Key to strategic maneuvering across the land, historic structures often targeted to acquire or destroy during wartime.

[edit] Resilience is King

It is difficult enough to design a bridge that will remain aesthetically relevant for a hundred and twenty-odd years. Let alone one that maintains its resilience. Advanced understanding of environmental factors and impact prevention sees many historic structures retrofit or updated to stay relevant.

[edit] Building into the Future

An era defined by greater collaboration between artists, architects, and engineers. Their combined expertise pushes design principles to question the fundamental purpose or mechanics of new structures.
