As a companion book to the permanent exhibit of the same name at ASME’s new headquarters, Engineering the Everyday and the Extraordinary celebrates engineering achievements and their impact on everyday life. The exhibit is made up of 80 rotatable triangular modules, each one telling an engineering story with a brief overview, a strong central image and a patent drawing or illustration, covering nine major domains of engineering.
The size and scope of the exhibit makes it an experience that can be visited many times, with each visit inspiring something new. Engineering the Everyday and the Extraordinary invites us to rediscover the remarkable – the engineers and inventions that have shaped our world as well as the extraordinary breakthroughs that are already setting the stage for the future.
The exhibit’s striking photographs, crisp diagrams and engaging content are presented in a beautifully designed, colorful format. From the Foreword by the renowned engineering historian Henry Petroski, who curated the exhibit, to the final pages, the book sparkles with engineering accomplishments, large and small.
