Material type: materialTypeLabelBookSeries: Elements of architecture ; 13.Publisher: Venecia : Marsilio, 2014Description: 88 p. : il. 19 cm.ISBN: 9788831720199; 9788891013057 .Subject(s): Escaleras mecánicas | Historia | ArquitecturaDDC classification: 721 Online resources: Ver vista previa Summary: The escalator, by design, represents an assault on the stair’s basic logic, rather than a development of it: a stair is a means of active conveyance; the escalator can be passive, both aiding the needy and coddling the lazy. It is a device designed not just to augment the potentials of the stair but to displace it, as the car replaced the horse-drawn carriage. Since it fails to do this, the escalator achieves a separate life, as a separate element, with its own semiotics, its own typology, its own architectural destiny.
