Arinze Stanley’s art defies what should be possible with pencil and paper.

A brand new installation in the French Alps, called Step Into the Void, opens today for those who are not afraid of heights. On the uppermost terrace of Aiguille du Midi, Europe’s highest mountain peak, sits a glass cube that looks like it’s suspended in mid-air. Now the tallest attraction in Europe, the structure has five transparent sides made of three layers of glass binded together. Of course, when you step into the box the most vertigo-inducing feeling will come when you look straight down through the glass floor to the dizzying view 3,395 feet (or 1,035 meters) below.
The attraction was inspired by the Grand Canyon’s Skywalk and was three years in the making. It was designed by Pierre-Yves Chays who custom built it “to the highest standards for safety and clarity.” If you’re brave enough to enter this glass cube, you’ll of course be rewarded with one of the most breathtaking 360° views in all of the world – of the French, Swiss and Italian Alps.
