Message . . . Up there in the frozen north, do they read foreign papers?
Inform them on the results of the fancy architecture that produced
the fiasco of the millennium bridge in London ( the wobble bridge ).

Well, and here I thought that heavy structural (like dams and bridges) were
the last bastion of the engineer - who was allowed to do pretty designs
without hiring an architect.  Up here in the frozen north, engineers are
actually not allowed to do anything preceived to be architecture.

Here are a couple of links describing an absolutely amazing structural
engineering project.

At least, I am amazed by this bridge.  It is more than 1.5 miles long, with
typical spans of 1,115 feet and pier heights up to 1,165 feet.
