Photographer's Note

The staircase of the Ruhr Museum ( the former coal washery) of the former coal mine Zeche Zollverein.

The giant industry complex of the Zollverein is turned into an industry park with of course the Rhur museum as attraction but also with a lot of the technical faciltities like shaft towers and their hoisting installations and the coal cart transportation system still in tact and accessible. A great alternative for an urbex trip. Legit and more safe ;-)

The drastic renovation of the coal washery was designed by OMA (Rem Koolhaas' Office of Metropolitan Architecture) with Heinrich Böll (not the wrighter but the architect from Böll und Krabel).

The staircase is situated in the giant void of the former 40 meter high raw coal bunker.
