We\$began\$the\$tower\$with\$a\$square\$base\$and\$a\$ row\$through\$the\$middle\$in\$order\$to\$stop\$the\$ sides\$from\$collapsing\$inwards.\$Small\$gaps\$ were\$left\$between\$the\$blocks,\$as\$it\$would\$ have\$been\$inefficient\$and\$too\$heavy\$to\$have\$ all\$the\$blocks\$close\$together.\$ \$ \$ \$ \$ \$ \$

By\$carefully\$removing\$blocks\$from\$the\$base,\$ we\$were\$able\$to\$create\$four\$openings,\$while\$ still\$keeping\$the\$tower\$solid.\$The\$base\$turned\$ into\$four\$pillars.\$ \$ \$
