A magnificent stair within a spectacular room. We doubt the walls have been arctic white at any one time, but this is as Palladian as it gets at the Faculty of Sciences, so who cares? The architect was probably William Elsden, an Englishman who was given the task of renovating and adding to the old Faculty of Philosophy in the 18th c.
