    —The Architecture Puzzler

    Created by Dave Guadagni

     

    Architecture Puzzler #222

    On March 26, 2000 an implosion lasting 16.8 seconds reduced Seattle’s Kingdome to a pile of rubble. It took considerably longer to remove the pile that measured 12 to 23 feet (3.6 to 7.0 meters) deep at its perimeter. What was the approximate cost of the entire demolition contract?


     

    Question from Last Week:
    Architecture Puzzler #221

    Suppose you have a 48-foot- (14.63-meter-) square section of concrete with a one-percent slope down to a center drain. If this center drain became plugged, how much water would the area contain before it flooded?  

    Answer to Puzzler #221
