Endless Stair at Tate ModernFrom 13th September until 10th October 2013 visitors can climb a temporary staircase to the sky, four and a half times the height of Big Ben. The Endless Stair outside Tate Modern, designed by architectural practice dRMM, is a landmark project of The London Design Festival 2013. The 436 metre interactive structure is made of a series of interlocking staircases, inspired by drawings of M.C. Escher. With 187 steps, the 7.7m tall Endless Stair is of the same height as a three-storey building, and will provide both Tate Modern and river Thames views. Open during daylight hours, the structure can accommodate a maximum of 93 people at a time.

 

About Tate Modern

Located along the banks of the River Thames in the former Bankside Power Station, originally designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott in 1947, the architect of Battersea Power Station, Tate Modern opened to great acclaim in 2000. Since then it has welcomed millions of visitors through its imposing doors. More about Tate Modern
