Get an inside look at the planning and engineering behind creating some of the greatest buildings and machines ever made. MegaStructures takes you inside the superstructures and all the inner workings that muscle together to make the structures function as a whole. Megastructures are all around us; skyscrapers in big cities, subway trains years ahead of their time. Discover these and more!
Berlin's new train terminal is designed to be constructed almost entirely out of glass and is being rushed to completion before the World Cup 2006, when millions of soccer fans will be expected to visit Berlin. Megastructures documents the historical feat when two daring teams attempt a feat never before accomplished in construction history; the tipping of two bridges over the roof of the glass station. Already costing 4 billion dollars, almost 5 years in construction delays, over budget, and with the architect suing the developers for cutting corners, will the terminal be ready before the dateline?
