The Coliseum

You wouldn’t think that a fair would be a great place for door-hunting, but I saw the doors below at The Big E last weekend.  There’s a lot going on here – sliding, folding, and swinging doors serving a giant assembly occupancy.  This reminds of many scenarios dreamed up by architects that I’ve advised strongly against.  No offense to all of the architects out there, but I’ll bet the facility hates these doors.

Here are a couple of the other entrances – not pretty, and not wide enough, but you could probably get out if you needed to.
