Hanoi towers

Designed by
Metod Burgar

At the end of the 19th Century there’s a massive breakthrough in concrete building – re-inforcing concrete with Iron bars. This allowed building higher and stronger constructions such as skyscrapers. The tower of Hanoi is a re-interpretation of the mathematical puzzle game invented in 1883 by the French mathematitian Édouard Lucas.

The game is made of cast concrete disks. Tzransitioning from a round shape at the bottom to an oval shape at the top they form a tower on a concrete base with three rebars.

The game begins with the disks stacked in a cone shape on one rebar. The goal of the game is to move the entire stack to the last rebar following a few rules. Only one disk may be moved at a time. Each move consists of taking the upper disk from one of the stacks and placing it on top of another stack or on an empty rebar. Disks can’t be placed on top of a disk that is smaller than it.
