The Stair Scape Cubes is a public functional art installation that does good for the community by creating human-powered electricity every step of the way. Through what is called the piezoelectric effect, each step that has pressure applied on it, creates a small amount of electricity, which is then sent to the local grid to generate electricity for the community.

The designer behind this eye-catching architectural masterpiece is Michael Janzten who envisioned the steel structure to be an ideal addition to any and all communities for not only its aesthetic appeal but also for its practical functionality. He envisions the cubes to be as useful as they are fun.  He hopes that this interactive piece will attract many tourists as well as work as a great place for public gatherings.

The Stair Scape Cubes and its ability to generate human-powered electricity is a piece of art that truly gives back to the community.
