Escher-esque Architecture

M.C. Escher’s work has fascinated viewers for decades.  According to the Escher website:

He played with architecture, perspective and impossible spaces. His art continues to amaze and wonder millions of people all over the world. In his work we recognize his keen observation of the world around us and the expressions of his own fantasies. M.C. Escher shows us that reality is wondrous, comprehensible and fascinating.

The trompe l’oeil stairs of Escher have inspiration in physical world.
