Saturday finds

You could spin around this staircase for “n” number of times and never feel dizzy, This Vatican museum’s staircase was designed for the people who are ascending to never meet the people who are descending. Designed by Giuseppe Momo in 1932, it is a monumental staircase and one of the most photographed one. But it gets more interesting, The design takes a physical representation and it was coincidental. The staircase design represents “Life” in other words the double helix DNA strand. It is not an abstract but an identical representation. The DNA was discovered much later in 1953. Design is something that never meets the eye at first sight. Meaningful interpretations and accidental coincidences make us celebrate design for many years to follow! Stay Inspired!
