Engineering Quote of the Week - Jean-Rodolphe Perronet


"A great bridge is a great monument which should serve to make known the splendour and genius of a nation; one should not occupy oneself with efforts to perfect it architecturally, for taste is always susceptible to change, but to conserve always in its form and decoration the character of solidity which is proper."
                                                                                                          ~Jean-Rodolphe Perronet
