If your New Years' resolution was to be more active, this unique staircase in Toronto will make accomplishing your goal actually fun. Unleash your inner Motzart on your way to work with this giant instrument. Toronto's piano stairs let you play actual music with your feet.
You don't have to be a pianist to play tunes on these keys.
A flight of notes in the Metro Centre has been transformed into a giant piano that emits real sound.
The steps have been designed as keys, and each one plays a different noise when you walk across it.
You can channel your inner Tom Hanks from Big as you climb this creative flight.
The Piano Stairs were conceptualized by Oxford Properties and installed by Trifold Creative in June 2019.
Kevin Hardy, Vice President of Property Management at Oxford Properties told Narcity that the stairs are a fun way to engage Torontonians.
He also said that the steps create a sense of wellness, both emotionally and physically. The musical stairway brings a smile to the user's faces and encourages more people to take the stairs as opposed to the escalator.
Fittingly, the sign beside the installation reads, 'The Keys To Wellness'.
The sounds can be changed, so you never know what noise to expect when taking this flight.
There were some festive notes played during Christmas, and perhaps more surprises in store for the future.
The installment will remain standing for the foreseeable future, meaning you have lots of opportunities to enjoy this harmonious journey.
You can also play with sound at the Loop installation happening in Toronto this month.
You can climb inside a 2-metre glowing circle and manipulate musical compositions and moving pictures.
Next time you're near the Metro Centre, stop by this whimsical staircase to create your own musical masterpiece.
Address: 200 Wellington St. W., Toronto, ON
