Richard Hammond travels to Taipei and discovers the secrets of the world's tallest building, Taipei 101. This modern marvel of engineering stands at a jaw-dropping 1671 feet. Built on top of a seismic fault line and in a typhoon hotspot, its height is all the more impressive given its location. Richard discovers just what it is in the Taipei 101's DNA that allows it be so tall and cope with these extreme natural events, and what all this cutting-edge engineering has in common with a bird cage, bamboo, boat masts and seat belts. Richard embarks on a fantastic journey of discovery that will take him from the mines of 17th-century England via the early skyscrapers of Chicago to the top of one of the most advanced buildings in the world.

Richard Hammond reveals how engineers made one of the longest bridges in the world earthquake-proof. Building a structure almost 3 kilometres long in water 65 metres deep was almost the least of the engineering challenges of bridging the Gulf of Corinth in Greece. The construction would cross one of the most active seismic fault lines in Europe. Defying disaster called for solutions inspired by fragrant Indian incense, the ring-pull in a soda can, a tobbogan, a hammock, and some shiny steel chimneys.
