BÂTIR TOUJOURS PLUS HAUT

The pitch

The man has never ceased to rise with increasingly dizzying constructions, vivid representations of an unlimited desire, of an ambition that underlies the history of mankind: conquering the sky.

From the pyramids of Egypt to the cathedrals, from the Eiffel Tower to the Burj Khalifa in Dubai which culminates at 828 meters, Richard Prunet – Professor of Physics at the University of Savoy Mont Blanc-will leave for a vertical journey, on the footsteps of the conquerors of the height. To discover and understand how, by what means, and through what techniques, men have been able, over the centuries, to defy, then master the laws of physics to build ... ever higher!
