A detail from the law offices of Domino & Wright

Another architectural detail from the six-story edifice (where Nexus works) is the large, central spiral staircase extending from the lobby up through the second floor.  If you are a fan of TV’s The Big Bang Theory, you have noticed that in most episodes the characters must ascend/descend several staircases around the broken elevator of their apartment building.  This three-dimensional shape echoes the double-helix DNA molecule model in the boys’ apartment, indicating some symbolic meaning–but what?

Critic Roger Ebert, in his commentary on the Sci-Fi classic Dark City, states that the form is fundamental to chaos theory, and is found everywhere in nature, from the tiny nautilus snail to telescopic views of spiral galaxies.

    Fantastic pictures


  2. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something
    that I think I would never understand. It seems
    too complex and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang
    of it!
