At first, this massive looping staircase appears to lead to nowhere. It is located in an industrial precinct and rests boldly on a grassy hillside on the outskirts of Rotterdam in the Netherlands. It is a new project by NEXT Architects titled ‘The Elastic Perspective.’
After walking up this massive looping oxidized-steel structure you come to the perfect over-look platform with views of the surrounding area. The look-out point provides panoramic perspective of the city’s skyline in the distance. The profound aesthetic of this public object leads stair-climbers on a journey that comes to represent the glory of the surrounding landscape and the city of Rotterdam.
