no. 01 THE STAIRCASE
Stairs offer up a physical space to linger in a state of suspension. We can be in limbo, between levels. Whether embedded or objectified in a larger plan, staircases provide relief and discretion, or can catalyze our exposure and interaction with something or someone else. And while upon entering the threshold of a staircase, the end point often overshadows the vantage point, sometimes we can suspend the pragmatic mental tasks ahead and simply focus on the mechanical task of moving ahead.
Here’s a look back through the ARCHIVES of our staircases.
