A Spiral Tower

This is a spiral tower I've built out of SuperMags, motivated by an email from Joost Koek. Note that I have tripled and cross-connected the basic spiral construction, because one thin spiral could only support its own weight when it was very short. At the top of the tower I have stepped down to two and then to one spiral, not only to make it higher than it would have been possible otherwise (at this height, the spiral is very close to collapse) but also because I think it's more aesthetic.
