Alien Staircase


Located inside an office building built in 1955 to house the administration of a paint factory, this spiral staircase is considered a masterpiece of architectural art of the 50s.

Its ambiguous shape raises different interpretations to different viewers: the straightforward goldfish pattern is emphasized by the central symmetry and dark triangular shaped steps at the bottom. The structure, together with the two lamps on the ceiling resembles the typical shape of an alien head. Some people just see an open mouth waiting for the building’s visitors to walk inside it.

And what do you see?
