Artistic 3D Endless Staircase- Work in Progress for the London Festival at St. Paul’s Cathedral

Artistic 3D Endless Staircase-
The great architects de Rijke Marsh Morgan (dRMM) is all set to design the Endless Wooden Staircase which will be installed outside St Paul’s Cathedral for celebrating London Design Festival in September 2013. This remarkable set of Wooden Endless Staircases is going to make an artistic mark at the London Design Festival. The design of these endless Stairs looks something similar to the Harry Potter’s Hogwarts which consists of near about 44m3 of American Tulip Wood organized in the form of twenty interlocking staircases.
These staircases are designed in such a way that the visitors to the Cathedral can actually walk between the Cathedral & the Millennium Bridge which will lead to the Tate Modern over the Thames and as well you can take a walk all around the south side.

At the London Festival they are planning to illuminate this structure of Endless Staircases with customized lightning schemes by the London Designers Seam. In accordance with the Dean of Architecture at the Royal College of Art & Alex de Rijke, founder of dRMM Architects the Endless Staircase is defined as a 3D exercise masterpiece that is going to be several storey’s high, structure and scale which is both a meeting place and a marker. Jonas states that it is not merely a structural experiment in engineered timber however it is meant to test the physical and visual knowledge of perspective and space.

If you look at the design of this Staircase it looks as though the designer’s dRMM have played a lot with the scale, shape and logic of the overall artistic structure. This structure is designed with the use of repeated panels in cross laminated timber and is going to be made u of the soft tulip wood. The reason why they prefer to use hard American tulipwood is because it has great strength and stiffness in panel form and which is why this is considered as an exciting material. Gear u to the see the results of this fantabulous design of Endless Staircase at the London Festival this September…!!!
