Francois Hennebique
Neighbours. Most of the time they’re just watching TV or finding new ways to avoid shoveling the sidewalk. But sometimes they can really surprise you. Like the time they painted one side of the house blue. Or when Mr. Hennebique—driven by his passion for restoring old churches and entrepreneurial spirit—patented a new method of reinforcing concrete. Many companies in Europe licensed his patent and the Germans used the technology to reinforce their bunkers across the fields of France.
