When industrialization took hold of the world at the beginning of the 21st century, humans began to develop faster and smarter ways of erecting the gigantic structures all around us, and these striking construction photos compiled for the ENR's Year in Construction Photo Contest certainly exhibits the beauty of our progression.
Many would like to think that science and art don't mix, but the heart-stopping allure of these photos solely relies on the fact that photographers were able to capture some unforgettable shots of people performing technical tasks.
Whether it were wielding replacement pieces in gleaming water pipelines or making repairs to the San Francisco/Oakland Bay bridge, these construction photos capture the essence of humanity's ability to adapt, modify and strive in many diverse climates. Funny enough, some of these well-timed photos also show our proficiency when it comes to destroying things too.
