The infrastructures beauty in 16 images around the world

Civil engineering masterpieces that express power just by looking at them. A power that is able to move vehicles, people and masses like no one would have dreamed before the 20th century.

Infrastructures that, driven by technological progress and collaboration between professionals from multiple sectors, tame the world according to human needs. By grafting works that appear to be on the same scale as nature. And this is just a very small taste.

Small, but still fascinating. We share this selection of images – of which unfortunately we have not been able to trace the original sources – starting from a community of infrastructure enthusiasts that is present on the Reddit platform.
