THE AMAZING STAIRCASE... OR LIBRARY?

Remember our post 'Re-imagining Stairs' from a few weeks back?

Now, this staircase design from London-based Levitate Architects comes even more fascinating than what we've seen earlier. It's a library built around the stairs. It's a space that defies definition.

I, for one, would love to spend my Sunday afternoon in this amazing library, ha!

To be fair, I think the stair is built a little too steep. But the design is inventive in the way it utilities space.

That is really awesome. You might be interested in some of the buildings in Fremont, Washington (the city of the well-known troll http://www.experiencewa.com/ImageLibrary/pois/8449/MorrisAaron2007_freemont%20troll.jpg).
Here's an example of one picture of a building:
