Staircases - Georges Perec - Species of Space


Horta House Stairs

Staircase by Victor Horta

Unknown - Perhaps Hector Guimard

"We don't think enough about staircases.

Nothing was more beautiful in old houses than the staircases. Nothing is uglier, colder, more hostile, meaner, in today's apartment buildings.

We should learn to live more on staircases. But how?"


:: Georges Perec (Species of Space, pg. 38)
