The massive Vessel structure in New York’s Hudson Yards — the biggest mixed use development in American history — has more than 154 separate staircases rising through 16 levels to a height of 46m. The deeply dramatic structure looks like an MC Escher drawing, but actually took its inspiration from the step wells of Rajasthan in India.
