Colorful Climb


Proving that a little color can go a long way, a group of Syrian students recently painted a vibrant colored pattern onto the longest public stairs in Syria, completely transforming the drab concrete into a beautiful statement. With hopes to bring a little light and color to the politically embattled nation, architecture academic Salmo al-Bata organized a crew of volunteer students to paint the path in shades of green, blue, yellow, orange, pink and red.
