Named “Elastic Perspective”, this design project by Amsterdam-based architecture practice NEXT Architects, is a endlessness circular stair which leads the visitor to the heights to enjoy an unhindered beautiful scenery of the horizon.
Inspiration from architect:
The continuity and endlessness have a double meaning, however. Because the stair is based on the principal of the Moebius ring, is has only one surface and can only exist as a three-dimensional object. Upside becomes underside becomes upside. The suggestion of a continuous route is therefore, in the end, an impossibility: Far away, so close.
