The Sundial Bridge, designed
by Santiago Calatrava, spans 700 feet across the Sacramento River
in Redding, California. The huge pylon
on our cover is 217 feet tall, that’s roughly 20 stories.
Nearly a mile of cables are stretched to support the bridge, which
has no right angles and no parallel lines. In April 2005, Time magazine
named Calatrava one of the 100 most influential people in the world.
