Thanks to our friends at Thames & Hudson Publishers, we’re giving away three copies of ‘The Staircase’. This extraordinary book showcases the astonishing diversity of staircases over the centuries and from all over the world, from the stepped pyramids of the Maya to the computer-aided designs of today.
The authors also explore the magical and symbolic meanings of the staircase. Powerful emblems of technological and artistic achievement, these staircases are inherently dynamic – as is every page of this fascinating and beautifully illustrated book.
The competition is open to Architonic Facebook fans and runs until the end of the day on Sunday 22 December.
