Massive Helix Copper Stairway At Denmark Experimentarium

The ‘experimentarium’, one of Denmark’s top science centers, has reopened with a striking new interior. Designed by architecture firm CEBRA, the scheme features a 100 meter-long helix staircase, built from 160 tons of steel and clad with 10 tons of copper. The impressive structure welcomes visitors inside the museum, before spiraling upwards, leading to each of the institution’s four storeys.
‘The staircase ensures a good internal flow and creates coherence between the floors,’ says CEBRA’s founding partner, Kolja Nielsen. ‘At the same time, it substantiates the building’s scientific focus. ‘During a workshop with Jakob Bohr, professor at DTU Nanotech, we were inspired to work with the stairs as an abstract version of the DNA strand’s structure. And so, the idea for the helix staircase was born.’
