They keep spiraling.

u/Grimshok Aug 15 '22

What's the next step?

u/Gunna5879 Aug 16 '22

We can only go up from here

u/Socky_McPuppet Aug 13 '22

Looks a little cold. It could use one of these.

Reminds me of the Fibonacci Sequence observed in snails. Genius man way beyond his time.

u/PlaceboJesus Aug 13 '22

It does look like it was inspired by shells.

u/RabidBeaverLake Aug 13 '22

I wish we knew who the artisans were. The execution is as important as the design.

u/sweetbunsmcgee Aug 13 '22

Can you imagine looking at the blue prints and then shitting your pants on the spot?

u/wildcat0987 Aug 13 '22 edited Aug 13 '22

the middle ages, safe to assume everyone was constantly shitting there pants anyway

edit: that will teach me to use reddit at 4am

u/DdCno1 Aug 13 '22

This was Renaissance, not Middle Ages.

Oh, that was when the adult diaper was developed, right?

Many times workers clean up designers plan. Make it work

Edit: most of the time

u/Racist_Snowflake Aug 13 '22

In this case I would say more so.

Is that Chambord? It's been ages since I was there.

u/ethman42 Aug 13 '22

Davinci designed spiral staircase? Probably

u/restlessleg Aug 13 '22

its amazing how one person can be so next level and never be matched

4

u/[deleted] Aug 13 '22

What about the men who actually built it

4

u/restlessleg Aug 13 '22

equally next level.

hella props

u/AdSensitive3713 Aug 13 '22

Looks like a hog warts hallway kinda

u/CSyoey Aug 13 '22

Came to the comments hoping I wasn’t the only one who thought that

2

u/TaoNL Aug 13 '22

First thing that came to mind was ‘Isn’t this where they filmed for Hogwarts?’. Maybe they were inspired by this design though :)

u/8Gh0st8 Aug 13 '22

All other spiral staircases can go home now, thank you.

u/8Gh0st8 Aug 13 '22

Ok, there can be categories. This is a beautiful spiral wood staircase!

u/HowerTwo Aug 13 '22

Thought of this too. Everyone thinks Leo was so amazing but forget about all the other artists out there

u/WoodSteelStone Aug 13 '22 edited Aug 13 '22

How about a helical one?

(1557.)

u/Substantial_Bat741 Aug 13 '22

that door placement is kinda bad

u/Economy_Leading7278 Aug 13 '22

I’d rather sword fight up those stairs than down them.

This is nice AF

u/Real_Pizza Aug 13 '22

Instant calm.

u/okiedokiebrokie Aug 13 '22

Hell yeah Da Vinci. It goes up and down like normal stairs, but in a much more aesthetically pleasing manner. I once saw in person a door designed by Michelangelo back before he was famous and I have to say, this is better.

2

u/4brokeass Aug 13 '22

You want us to build what?

2

u/DeltaXi1929 Aug 13 '22

While it is impressive, it isn't self supporting.

Check out this staircase in Virginia City, NV.. It has no internal supports. It just hangs from the walls all wood construction.

It was built in the late 1800s and my understanding is that it is an architectural mystery as of today.

I'm pretty sure I've climbed this stairwell in Assassins Creed.

A little spackle and second coat will do wonders for it.

Thankfully, there are no DiCaprio staircases of horror

u/Fabulous-Ad6844 Aug 13 '22

It’s stunning. How is it staying up? How’d they build it?

u/pneuma_1902 Aug 13 '22

Doesn't it look ...kinda ...erotic?
