About The Book
“Original, highly readable… An extraordinary book.” — Anne Eisenberg, Scientific American
A companion to the man-made landscape that reveals how our industrial environment can be as dazzling as the natural world.
Replete with the author’s striking photographs, «Infrastructure» is a unique and spectacular guide, exploring all the major «ecosystems» of our modern industrial world, revealing what the structures are and why they’re there, and uncovering beauty in unexpected places — awakening and fulfilling a curiosity you didn’t know you had. Covering agriculture, resources, energy, communication, transportation, manufacturing, and waste, this is the «Book of Everything» for the industrial landscape.
The objects that fill our everyday environment are streetlights, railroad tracks, antenna towers, highway overpasses, power lines, satellite dishes, and thousands of other manufactured items, many of them so familiar we hardly notice them. Larger and more exotic facilities have transformed vast tracts of the landscape: coal mines, nuclear power plants, grain elevators, oil refineries, and steel mills, to name a few. «Infrastructure» is a compelling and clear guide for those who want to explore and understand this mysterious world we’ve made for ourselves. 500 color illustrations.
