The Cascade (Armenian: Կասկադ Kaskad) is a giant stairway in Yerevan, Armenia. It links the downtown Kentron area of Yerevan with the Monument neighborhood. The construction of the cascade designed by architect Jim Torosyan was launched in 1971 and completed in 1980.

Inside the Cascade, underneath the exterior steps is a couple of escalators going the length of the complex. There are also rooms connected to some of the landings along the escalators which comprise the Cafesjian Museum of Art.

The exterior of Cascade, in addition to stairs has multiple levels with fountains and sculptures. The stairs afford walkers unobstructed views of central Yerevan and Mount Ararat.

"Cascade Complex" in Yerevan is an architectural complex on the hillside, located north of city center.

Externally, they look as great stairs, decorated with flowerbeds, fountains, sculptures and contemporary chaczkarami (plates with a carved Armenian cross). The name comes from fountains that flow down of cascade.

The first caskades project at the beginning of 20th century was developed by architect Alexander Tamanian. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of joining Armenia to the USSR, in 1970 this great construction project was returned. Work began only in 1980, but after the earthquake in 1988 and the breakup of the Soviet Union, the work was stopped.

In 2001, the building was taken over by Armenian millionaire, philanthropist and collector Gerard Cafesjian who lived in the United States. He decided to transform the whole into a museum with an exhibition of modern art.

Kaskady w Erywaniu to kompleks architektoniczny na zboczu wzgórza, położony na północ od centrum miasta.

Zewnętrznie prezentują się jako wielkie schody, ozdobione kwietnikami, fontannami, rzeźbami oraz współczesnymi chaczkarami (płytami z rzeźbionym krzyżem ormiańskim). Nazwa wywodzi się od fontann, które spływają po progach na kształt kaskady.

Pierwszy projekt Kaskad na początku XX wieku opracował architekt Aleksander Tamanian. Dla uczczenia 50-lecia przyłączenia Armenii do ZSRR, w latach 70 tych XX wieku powrócono do tego wielkiego projektu budowlanego. Prace rozpoczęto dopiero w 1980, ale po trzęsieniu ziemi w 1988 i rozpadzie Związku Radzieckiego, prace przerwano.

W 2001 roku budowę przejął żyjący w Stanach Zjednoczonych ormiański milioner, filantrop i kolekcjoner Gerard Cafesjian. Zdecydował się przekształcić całość w muzeum z ekspozycją sztuki nowoczesnej.
