The Stair-Scape Terrain Structure by Michael Jantzen models an energy-efficient fitness block where people can climb steps, roller blade or skateboard for leisure and workout purposes. The ramp is also wheelchair-friendly.

The structure is 110 feet long and has three sections: two for steps and one center section for hill-shaped ramps. The green exterior of the structure would blend well with an outdoor environment. The triangular design of it is intended to symbolize a landscape of hills.

It would ideally be situated in a public park, in line with new or already-existing paths to save space. That would allow for a never-ending walk on the Stair-Scape even in smaller parks. This outdoor workout station would require no use of energy; it is 100% eco-friendly. The structure would be built of wood, steel and concrete.
