Easy to see why the top blew off.. looks like its made not nearly as strong as the rest of the building.

Intentionally so as designed. The building performed as it should have when the hydrogen lit up.

This is an Achilles heel for older BWRs. The tin roof housing the Spent Fuel Pool. Also, this serves as Secondary Containment which captures most of the gases and passes them through charcoal filters prior to releasing. This is where the Venting of the Containment accumulated hydrogen after Core Damage.
