Artist's Description

TOP TEN (2nd) in the Unusual Stairs and Walkways Challenge in the Roadways, Highways, Stairways and Byways Group, 5th March 2015

This sculpture is in Kings Park, Perth, Western Australia. Built on the highest point of the park in 1966, the DNA Tower is a white 15m high double helix staircase that has 101 steps and was inspired by a double staircase in the Château de Blois in France. Its design resembles the deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) molecule. The paving below the DNA Tower is made with stones sent from 11 towns and 80 shires in Western Australia.

Beginning in 1965, the Kings Park Festival which began in 1965, has grown to a month long celebration of floral displays, live music, exhibitions, workshops, interpretive artworks, guided walks and family activities throughout September. Held to promote the beauty of Western Australia’s native wildflowers, the event now attracts over 500,000 people including gardening enthusiasts, families, school students, artists, seniors and fashion lovers.
