BEAUX-ARTS SCHOOL PART 5: DECO STAIRS

“Your mother is a man” reads the chalk graffitto at the wood stairs to the teachers lounge. Bullying or surrealism, another great surprise when touring the Alexandre Herculano were these moderne stairs with their massive wood rails and newels, at the same time perfectly executed and graceful. The super tall vertical window adds another element of modernity, but as before it is articulated and detailed enough to resonate with the rest of the structure.
