Endless Stair is more or less an M.C. Escher drawing brought to life. This visually astounding staircase was first previewed by dRMMArchitects some months ago, and now it has made its official debut at the 2013 London Design Festival. The project stands 25 feet tall and is comprised of 15 different staircases and 187 steps. The top of Endless Stair is said to provide great views of the Tate Modern (it resides on Tate's lawn) and the River Thames.

The beauty of Endless Stair is that it can be easily broken down and transported, meaning that it may very well live on even after the London Design Festival comes to a close. According to dRMMArchitects, the entire thing stretches more than a quarter of a mile in length when completely disassembled. Stats for Escher-Inspired Art Projects (UPDATE) Trending: Older & Average
