Apple Park's All-Glass Design Could Cause Some Employees Distracted To Walk Into The Panels

According to a Bloomberg report, there's a design flaw in Apple Park’s all-glass design that for some employees who might not have been paying 100% attention to walking that could have accidentally walked into the clear glass internal walls of the pods that make up Apple Park.

It's especially prominent when many employees eyes are glued to their iPhones, and often don’t see the glass walls and doors that are ever-so-prevalent around the office. A solution to the flaw is that these employees stuck Post-It notes to the walls to make them easier to see, but they will distract the building's design.

Surrounding the building, located in Cupertino, California, are 45-foot tall curved panels of safety glass. Inside are work spaces, dubbed “pods,” also made with a lot of glass. Apple staff are often glued to the iPhones they helped popularize. That’s resulted in repeated cases of distracted employees walking into the panes, according to people familiar with the incidents.

While Apple is still in the process of moving employees over to the new campus, it is not clear how many firm number on how many times distracted employees found themselves face-first in a glass wall or door, but it reportedly has been happening repeatedly.
