Does the ever-illusive man-made structures round of the pub quiz always serve as your undoing?

Coba Europe have come to your aid. The flooring specialists know a thing or two about man's greatest structural achievements, and have compiled a fact-busting infographic on the tallest, deepest, longest, largest volume covering and most expensive man-made structures in the world.
