London Museum Renovation Features Massive Sculptural Stair

London's Wellcome Collection is an unconventional museum: it explores the connections between medicine, art, and life. It's only appropriate that its visitors are greeted by an exceptional sight: a massive steel stair designed by Wilkinson Eyre Architects as part of a recent renovation. The architects crafted a flowing asymmetrical pathway whose alluring shape draws visitor deeper into the historic building. Its gunmetal surfaces were created by blasting the steel plates with hard pellets to reveal the raw metallic layers underneath.
