Ups and Downs 4

We saw this elegant set of stairs during our recent visit to Los Angeles. It’s the Bunker Hill Steps in Downtown LA, facing the Central Library. The 103 steps were desiged by the architect Lawrence Halprin and completed in 1990. A sign at the top of the steps claims that they “were modeled in theory on the Spanish Steps in Rome but more pleasingly asymmetrical in execution”.
