The shape...
After two years of
research, Bruce discovered that the roof naturally assumed the
shape of a star. The fact that it was a tenpointed star was another
astounding discovery because, amazingly, the distance from point to
point of the star is exactly the same measurement as the height of the
building, demonstrating yet another example of the mathematical
constants to be found in Stonehenge. The cutaways between the star
points are the same ratio (1 to 3), making their depth the same as the
height of the Sarsen Circle!

The
building did not need any guttering because all the rainwater would be
channeled to the points of the star touching the ground. No drips no
mess, absolutely ingenious.
