Designed and built by that 'master craftsman' Bergholt Stuttley Johnson for which Johnson specified quicksand as a building material because they wanted it up fast.

It did indeed go up fast. And came down even faster. It is now known as the Collapsed Tower of Quirm. Perhaps symbolically, the tower, or its remains, are part of the Fools' Guild's holdings in the La Sorbumme district of the City. Visitors are warned that street theatre is permitted in Quirm and should avoid mime acts whilst watching for banana skins and spilt custard underfoot.
