    —The Architecture Puzzler

    Created by Dave Guadagni

    Last Week's Puzzler

    Question

    What is entasis? What is exfoliation?

    Answer

    Entasis is the curve of the upper two thirds of a column. Exfoliation is the splitting apart of the outer surface of natural stone into thin layers that peel off. It is also called delamination or spalling.
