Tuesday, October 26, 2004

Tonight on Extension 720: “Man cannot live by technology alone,” or so thought Arnold Toynbee, but technology certainly makes the world an easier place. Tonight, we examine and celebrate some of the greatest technological achievements of humans throughout history. From gothic cathedrals to jumbo jets, we will look at the melding of craftsmanship, science and aesthetics with E.E. LEWIS, professor of mechanical engineering at Northwestern University and author of the new book Masterworks of Technology: The Story of Creative Engineering, Architecture, and Design. He will be joined by KEVIN HARRINGTON, professor of architectural history at the Illinois Institute of Technology, and TOM MISA, associate professor of history at IIT.
