Incomplete Continuous Stair    2001

In 2000 about one year before the destruction of the World Trade Center I tried to build a paper stair case that was 110 stories at  a scale of  ¼” = 1’-0”.  My ceilings were 14 feet tall so I had to stop building when I reached 32 stories.  As the staircase grew I had to reinforce the structure with diagonal bracing and add to the size of the base in order to stabilize the tower.
