Lean

Here are some facts about the leaning tower of Pisa:

⁃ Height: 55.86m

⁃ Weight: 14,500 tonnes

⁃ Steps: 295

⁃ Incline: 3.9 degrees (post restoration)

The main fact that makes this tower notable is its biggest design flaw – the incline from miscalculating the foundation’s stability.

Sometimes, leaning into imperfections makes for the most interesting idea.
