A compelling shot. Although much more beautiful and poetic, the stairway that floats.sounds a little like a precursor to the escalator. :)

It makes me very curious to want to see the whole thing. I'm trying to imagine what it looks like. It looks quite complicated.

I was there a few months ago, this staircase is truly amazing! I loved the hallway of trees too!

Beautiful! I'll show this one to my husband who is a fan of beautiful architecture.

What a wonderful perspective - surely a challenge for the sense of sight. Please have a nice Wednesday.

Thanks for your visits and comments, everyone.
Mary, he is one of my favourite architects. If I win the lottery, I would follow him the world over to see all his work. Nora yes, this is a complicated staircase. I'll post more angles of later. I have a membership, Karine, and sometimes I will just wander in for another look at it. I am in awe of it!
