Well all you have to do is look around. Like in construction sites you see heavy machinery. Brunelleschi inspired some of the machines designs.

Conclusion

At first I asked myself Why is Brunelleschi so important? Now i know that he is the one who helped design huge machinery to help build famous architecture. Without him how could we have huge Architecture like the Disney Ebcot Ball. Imagine how sad that would be or even the small stuff like a school house now we know the important's of Brunnelleschi.
