Abandoned Engineering The Exhibition is on at the Gallery @ OXO on the South Bank in London from 23rd October. This photographic exhibition will feature some of the most spectacular examples of abandoned engineering from around the world.
Once they were at the cutting edge of engineering, design and construction. Now they are echoes from history. Crumbling and on the brink of destruction, they can remind us of terror war and the devastating power of nature, but also of extraordinary events, great innovation and human endeavour. Each location featured is from the documentary television series, Abandoned Engineering on Yesterday.
The television series explores how and why they were built, considers the financial and social costs of their failure and examines the environmental and ecological impacts. The series also explores how experts came up with plans to make something beautiful or useful from the ruins. Previous episodes of Abandoned Engineering can be seen on demand on UKTV Play – the home of Yesterday.
