dRMM’s Endless Stair outside the Tate Modern

For this year’s London Design Festival, architectural firm dRMM have created a stunning sculpture made of interlocking staircases. Erected on the green outside Tate Modern, the Escher-inspired, interactive creation is open to the public to climb and walk over. Although the LDF finished last week, Endless Stair will remain in situ until October 10. The three-dimensional structure comprises of 15 interlocking staircases made of 11.4 tonnes of American tulipwood. It is somewhat of a staircase maze, with flights going up, down and out. The main attraction is the highest staircase stretching out to nowhere, with a piece of safety glass preventing a would-be plunge to the ground. It is here, albeit after a short wait, you can enjoy stunning views of St Paul’s Cathedral and surrounding buildings of the City of London.

  • Endless Stair runs from 13 September to 10 October 2013 and is accessible during daylight hours from 9am until dusk. Nearest tube/train: Blackfriars. For more information, visit the dRMM website.
