Hilltop staircase inverts upon itself

stair

 

A hilltop staircase by Dutch firm NEXT Architects appears to create a continuous pathway, but folds back in on itself making a complete circuit impossible.

It is sited close to Carnisselande, a suburb south of Rotterdam, where it provides a viewpoint overlooking the city skyline.

The surface of the pathway wraps around onto its underside, making it impossible to walk around the entire periphery.

The structure is built from pre-weathered Corten steel, giving it a vivid orange tone that contrasts with the bright green of the grass below.
