This is a cute civil engineering guide that explores the overlooked “charm of civil engineering,” which, despite its grand and substantial image, is intimately connected to everyday life.
From elaborately designed water towers that were once the pride of towns in the era of modern water supply systems, to cylindrical water dividers ingeniously created to resolve “water disputes” fairly, to small tunnels dug by villagers that are just big enough for one person to pass through—this book allows you to thoroughly enjoy the cuteness of such beloved local structures, as well as that of large-scale constructions like dams.
