The sleek steel of this 30-foot-tall double-helix staircase pops against the backdrop of an orange-and-glass vertical office tower. Located in the courtyard of the global accounting firm KPMG Deutsche Treuhand-Gesellschaft since 2004, Umschreibung (or “rewriting” in German) is the creation of the Danish artist Olafur Eliasson. The staircase doesn’t actually lead anywhere and isn’t open to the public to climb, but it certainly makes a statement. —Lyndsey Matthews
