One of my first Guinness World Records, built in 1998, this tower suffered several blows by a 2x12 plank from the scaffolding which knocked a huge hole in it. I had been worrying about the tower's stability while building, but realized after the encounter with the plank there was nothing to worry about. This tower was clearly much stronger than I every imagined and it gave me a kind of newfound courage to go back up on top of the scaffolding and complete it taller than I had hoped. It's the first tower where I didn't put an external skin on it so you could see the internal cells.Leaving the structure exposed instead of siding with cards was interesting for viewers, because they could see how the tower was put together.
