Our project is attempting to kickstart and inspire 800 million people INTO MYSTERY by creating architecture that is influenced by your participation.
INTO MYSTERY: Reveal
Each clue corresponds to one of the eighteen ClueChambers contained (and cantilevered) within our structure. Imagine having access to parts of our tower to which only you and your new, Kickstarter-backer friends have the keys.
About INTO MYSTERY
INTO MYSTERY hopes to be a monument to creativity and human inquiry. The project taps into the Kickstarter community - the trusted makers of all things creative - to fund the first structure of its kind. Not built by governments or private corporations, this building's creation relies solely on those with a passion for puzzle solving, architecture, and the future of a new creative, global community.
As a reward for their pledges, supporters of the project will be granted a series of clues that include everything from math, ciphers, puzzles, art and language. Solving each clue not only allows the supporter to take part in a great mystery, but each person's participation will literally transform the design of the tower.
Once the project has been constructed, supporters will receive privileged access to the part of the building they helped to fund. It will be one of the first buildings with such a close relationship between those who get to explore it and those who made it happen - and you have the opportunity to be a part of it.
Artistic Involvement! As part of Clue 09: KickArt, we have been collaborating with a handful of talented artists and designers, including, Adam Reed Tucker, the creator of LEGO Architecture! Adam has been working closely with us to create a 29" micro-scaled version of our structure. Jump INTO MYSTERY to receive your model kit as a reward for your participation on our Intermission Clue: Reveal.
The unique structure of the building has been designed, but we need YOUR participation to get it off the ground. As you take part in the mystery, this striking monument to humanity and creativity may grow.

SHARE THE MESSAGE
The basic equation of INTO MYSTERY postulates that if 800,000,000 people each donated $4, we could build a modern wonder for a new age, together forming the design and purpose of each space. The problem is that's a lot of people! If you've kicked in your share (and even if you haven't), the greatest gift that you can give to the project is to tell someone. Tell everyone! Keep telling people until you have told all 799,999,999 of your closest friends.
Our challenge is to reach our target goal for each of the next eight clues. We added an INTERMISSION Clue realizing that keeping the mystery from everyone about the architecture portion wasn't helping. The structure is the instruction booklet of INTO MYSTERY - it is the template of knowing that you can access each space by participating in each project Clue on Kickstarter!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
