Photo of the Week--4/11/11

Here's something architecturally interesting ... a tower with no stairs! The Rundetarn in Copenhagen, Denmark, was built in the 17th century as an astronomical tower. I don't know why they built a spiral ramp instead of stairs—perhaps to make it easier to deliver the telescope—but it made for a fun trip upstairs, especially with little hidey-holes along the way, perfectly sized for a Boy to jump out and scare people.

  1. Your pictures are great. It'd be neat to see a tower without stairs. Maybe a different way to have a tower in a book.
