Ein Schweizer in Amerika

The bridge builder O.H. Ammann

After his degree at ETH Zurich, the Swiss structural engineer Othmar H. Ammann left his homeland in 1904 to try his luck in America. With the construction of the George Washington Bridge (1931) and the Verrazano Narrows Bridge (1964) in New York, the longest suspension bridges at the time, he would create milestones of the modern age. Documents and photographs trace the career of this remarkable man.
