He Art Museum in China

Top 10 staircases of the year feature in today's Dezeen Weekly newsletter

The latest edition of our Dezeen Weekly newsletter features our roundup of 2020's top 10 projects involving staircases.

Pritzker Prize-winning architect Tadao Ando made the list with a pair of giant, concrete helical staircases that twist around the centre of the He Art Museum in Guangdong, China. The staircases are housed in a central courtyard and spiral upwards to connect all four floors.

The roundup also includes a staircase that doubles as a climbing wall and a flower-like staircase with petal-shaped steps.
