Kern Center Puzzles

Puzzle 4 Description

Bolt caps added to the beams in the 2nd floor information room.

Difficulty: Hardest!

Design Inspiration

I wanted some puzzles that would be easy, and some that would be hard; this is the hardest puzzle! To meet the Living Building Challenge, the Kern Center construction didn't add superfluous materials, so the bolts on each of the beams are exposed. When taking a tour of the building while it was still being constructed, these beams caught my eye so I used them in a puzzle. I particularly wanted to encourage visitors to notice areas of the building that otherwise would be ignored, like the ceiling.
