    The Escherian Stairwell

    The Escherian Stairwell based at the Rochester Institute of Technology in New York is an architectural marvel that seems to violate the laws of physics and basic logic by looping back into itself, thus creating an endless staircase.

    Yes it is in fact a myth (not sure why they call it a myth, not a hoax), presumably made 
    using identical twins:
    The Stairwell Project: Building a Modern Myth by Michael Lacanilao — Kickstarter
    Although, I can't help wonder whether just creating the myth was the real purpose of it, or some type of viral behavioural study.
