Entry Title: " Suspension of Disbelief Stair"
Category and Expertise: Architectural Design, Professional
The suspension of disbelief stair emerged from the designer's vision: a stair created from a minimalist steel plate ribbon, folded to form the risers and treads, whose structural support is equally as minimalist utilizing slim, imperceptible suspension rods. The goal is simplicity and lightness of a stair half the weight of a conventional one, unfettered by traditional stringers, achieving structural requirements by exploiting the code required guardrails to doubly perform as structural trusses. The effect of this minimalist, hot -rolled steel stair is enhanced by its juxtaposition to the early 20th century industrial historic building shell which originally housed a factory.
