The Endless Stair, a visually and architecturally impressive installation, is to be placed in the grounds of the Tate Modern during the London Design Festival from September 13th to October 10th. The temporary hardwood sculpture, which features 187 steps, is designed to be reconfigured and re-used.

The Endless Stair has been designed by dRMM architects and is the second hardwood structure that the AHEC (American Hardwood Export Council) has commissioned for the London Design Festival. Professor Alex de Rijke, director of dRMM, said:

Endless Stair is a temporary sculpture designed to be endlessly reconfigured. After initially considering a site at St Paul’s Cathedral, the London Design Festival team have decided the best location for the Stair’s debut is outside Tate Modern, Bankside. The program of modern art and architecture, combined with the Thames panorama of London, provides a context to which dRMM’s Escher-inspired installation can make a distinctive contribution.
