These fire escapes were on every high rise building years ago. The older buildings downtown. They are still there, but are seldom thought of because all the new buildings are so sleek, glassy and shiny. But I still like ’em because of the graphics they produce all day long. Revealing printed details easily seen on cloudy days, creating strong shadows on sunny days. They are a mess and tangle of iron rods that make perfect sense and save lives too.
