The grand staircase leading up to Duomo de San Giorgio (San Giorgio Cathedral), a UNESCO World heritage Site in Modica. Modica is a historic town in Sicily, famous for its Baroque architecture and its Cioccolato al peperoncino (chilli chocolate)!
David Chipperfield stairs remind me of the staircases often depicted in optical illusion paintings. I like how glass is use for the balustrades, so the stairs are the main focus in this space. The open ceiling naturally lights up the structure.
