The Eagles worked together to make the Crystal Palace this week. They constructed tetrahedra for the bases and tripods for the pillars. These supported a barrel roof which was the main feature of the Crystal Palace.

We found out that there was a problem with sparrows inside the original building and they pooed all over Queen Victoria and the Duke of Wellington! So sparrowhawks were introduced and all the sparrows were eaten.

Crystal Palace was built in 1851 and designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. It burned down in 1936. The invention of the cast plate glass method in 1848 meant it was the largest amount of glass ever seen in a building and astonished visitors with its clear walls and ceilings that did not require interior lights, thus a "Crystal Palace"
