If We Built It Today

If We Built It Today explores the world’s most iconic structures and landmarks including The Great Pyramid of Giza, The Pantheon, The Roman Colosseum, and The Great Wall of China. The series looks at some of most enduring structures ever built by man, structures that have survived the test of time, and asks the question what if we built them today?

The show is a thought experiment that takes the viewer on a journey to imagine exactly how well our modern technology lives up to the ingenuity of our ancestors. Each episode visits a renowned structure and poses the questions: how long would it take, what materials would we use, how many workers would be needed, how dangerous would it be, and how much would it cost, if we built it today?
