No 8 Arup. Studio jenny Jones

"No.8@Arup’ is an annual competition, now in it's fourth year, that shines a spotlight on innovative installations and sculptures from talented designers and architectural practices.

This year, entrants have been asked to explore ideas for a vertical communication system; by creating a stairway installation for the atrium space within the No. 8 Fitzroy Street, London office."

In SJJ’s proposal the role of the atrium as a light giving device is merged with the performance of vertical connections, by imagining a light-weight and light-emitting, central spine staircase that tapers as it ascends the atrium
