Look and Learn: How A City Works

Alex Woolf

Look and Learn: How A City Works

Each title in the Look and Learn series explores a man-made structure layer by layer, looking at how science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM) have been employed to make them function. Each spread focuses in on one aspect of the structure, with stunning artwork, bite-sized text, panels, labels and diagrams providing multiple entry points into the subjects, making the books appealing and accessible for reluctant readers.

How A City Works looks at the scientific innovations that have made vast cities possible, including how skyscrapers are constructed, the forms of energy creation that help to power homes and offices, and the different modes of public transport that help to reduce carbon emissions and traffic congestion.
