Charles Jencks is the American landscape architect and designer behind this incredible flight of stairs. Called The Universe Cascade, it has 25 landings that mark the important shifts in cosmic history. Starting at the top, in the present day, and descending down, visitors are moving through 13 billion years of cosmic evolution. The steps finally disappear into the dark water below, which represents the mystery of the origin of the universe.

What’s been going on in the land of White Space Project?
So far, there’s been an epic effort from girls all over, starting with customization creations in NYC, hosted by eyewear design duo Coco & Breezy and indie pop singer Yuna Zarai; an art exhibition curated by artist Yan Wei and movie star Fan Bing Bing in Beijing’s ZAN8 gallery space; and a party which was oodles of fun that included an interactive photo wall, held at the Originals store in downtown Athens. Bloggers, TV presenters and Originals fans have all been spotted enjoying the WSP action.
And that’s just a taste of it! There are more events to come so keep your eyes on adidasoriginals.tumblr.com
