Amazing feat of engineering in a small space

Our friend Sergio Sapio brings us this amazing feat of engineering: the RIT (Rochester Institute of Technology) has built this fantastic Escherian Stairwell (called like that due to M.C.Escher's work on impossible constructions) inside its campus. It blows your mind away.

Some important info about the physics of this staircase (how did they do it?) after the break.
Ok, it's a fake. But you loved it while it lasted, didn't you?
