This Fire Escape Goes To 11+


Yeah, that’s really a fire escape for the Edifício Copan, an apartment building in Sao Paolo Brazil. With 1,160 apartments and over 2,000 residents, the Brazilian postal service assigned the building its own postal code. Designed by Oscar Niemeyer, construction took 14 years to complete (1952-1966).

There are about 100 employees in the maintenance department, and I pity the poor sap that has to sweep the stairs every day.

I want to go to the top and release 1,001 little rubber balls.
