Bridges are some of the most iconic structures that humans have created. With their combination of functionality. strength and design, they reflect the convergence of science and engineering with public art. They also embody the changing tastes and needs of different times and places: from the Ponte Vecchio to the London Millennium Bridge. This is a guide for the layman through the elements - beams, arches, trusses and suspensions from which all bridges are built.
