Oh the irony

The worlds worst facility for the blind, the new Norwegian Sound and Braille Library. Quotes from the pictures:
The door has already injured several. The opener is far away on the wall to the right, and the blind can get the door in the face while navigating this hurdle.

The inlaid artwork on the ground seems to be a guide, but instead it leads the visually impaired out of the building if followed.

This door opener juts out so far that it becomes a collision point for blind library users.

Even before one enters the building, lights embedded in the ground are a potential hazard.
What on Earth do they teach at some design schools?
