Burnham and Root's iconic Rookery Building features an oriel staircase - defined as a staircase that projects from the wall, connecting floors, but does not reach to the ground floor. The straight lines of each step's riser contrast with the elegant curved form, and the white undersides of each step stand out from the surrounding dark metalwork.
