Climbing or walking down.
The staircase has been the most dynamic element in architecture.
It defies the gravity law so as to bring us up to the heights or down, under the earth we step on.
The Up is the light, the freedom, and also the power.
The Down is the darkness, the hidden side, or the prison.
The staircase, dovoid of functionality, has become independent and an aesthetic element to be contemplated as the “painting as a staircase” where climbing or walking down is no posible.
