Florists of yesterday have undergone a dramatic transformation through flower stylists into genuine flower artists and floral designers.

Staircases may not the first thing that comes to mind when we talk about architecture, but luckily, elevators don’t always hit the brief, so we still have this amazing structure to serve the purpose. Architects have an extraordinarily large pool of examples to choose from, yet they still often end up with even smarter solutions that suit our need to ascend.
