10 Architecturally Wondrous Staircases

10 Architecturally Wondrous Staircases

A friend forwarded me one of those emails her husband got at work. It was full of photos of amazing staircases plus some strange magic eye type puzzles. Being the visual person that I am, I became completely fixated on the staircases and even went so far as to search for more and more visually indulging photos of creative staircases. I couldn't get enough. Who thinks of these designs?

I think one of the most overlooked staircases in the world is the staircase in the Notre Dame Basilica...seen here http://blog.petaflop.de/wp-content/uploads/2007/06/basilica-basilique-notre-dame-interior-innenraum-altar-montreal-canada-kanada-dscn7435.jpg

Staircase #10 is located in the Loretto Chapel in Santa Fe, New Mexico and has two 360 degree turns and no visible means of support.

some of the private stairs shown are intentionally dangerous to mock the building codes and injure the stupid rich people who would have them.
