The Tower Without EndsStreaming Video - 2006
A glittering new tower will soon be scraping the skies over Paris. Transparent and thin as a pencil, it will challenge the laws of nature. But will it snap in a storm or collapse like a house of cards? Our host for this program is Tony Fitzpatrick, a dynamic engineer who has built some of the world's most flamboyant skyscrapers. In addition to examining this new tower in Paris, the program traces the dizzying history of skyscrapers and our quest to build to the heavens as we struggle to defy wind and gravity.
