I posted without vetting - I guess I should have. There are supposed to be two videos explaining it. can't find them.
After a second cup of coffee, I realized it could only be a hoax - everyone remembers this triangle

and the stairs ...

The said staircase is said to violate the laws of physics and basic logic by looping back into itself.

The clip shows some students, who step on the stairs for the first time, brought to amazement after finding out that it is indeed a never-ending staircase.

But no, the video is just a hoax and there is no Escherian stairwell that exists in RIT nor elsewhere in the world.

Everything is part of a project by film and animation graduate student Michael Lacanilao. "The Stairwell Project" aims to create a modern myth regarding the existence of such "magic staircase" in the school.

The shot where all the students were holding hands was pretty well done.

I learned this one as a young mechanical design/draftsman in the early '60's.

Remarkable how the non-professional actors gave a convincing show of being surprised.
They seemed to be real reactions.
I will keep that in mind.
