A cinematic homage to one of the most distinguished engineers of the late 20th century, An Engineer Imagines traces the extraordinary life and career of Peter Rice from his childhood in Ireland to his work on the Sydney Opera House, The Pompidou Centre and the Lloyd's Building, to his untimely death in 1992. Marcus Robinson uses stunning time-lapse photography and revealing interviews to tell the story of a genius who stood in the shadow of architectural icons. Until now.
