Nikolai Nikitin, Moscow TV Tower http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ostankino_Tower.
The story of its design and construction is fascinating.

Hello Everyone,

 

I?m working on creating a Structural Engineering Hall of Fame online.  Can anyone give me some prominent structural engineers (alive or not) and structures that should be included.  Also, any other ideas for this project are greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Jeremy White
