    Architecture Puzzler #255

    If one of the criteria for your design is a five-gauss exclusion zone, what type of space are you likely to be designing?


     

    Question from Last Week:
    Architecture Puzzler #254

    Doric, Corinthian, and Ionic are three classical orders in which there is a specified ratio between the diameter of the column and its height (measured between the pedestal and the entablature). The simplest is the most stout, and the most elegant (in terms of detailing) is the slimmest. Which has a column height equal to 8 column diameters? Equal to 9 diameters? Equal to 10 diameters?  

    Answer to Puzzler #254
