Bad Design Style: Case #77

This is a wheelchair ramp made for a museum in Indonesia. While I appreciate the attempt at accessibility, it’s not perfect.

Obviously this is an add on and there is a ramped surface with a handrail. So while not totally inaccessible, there’s room for improvement. First being that it’s just too steep. Definitely beyond a 1:12 ratio. Secondly there’s no handrail or guard on one side. So there’s the dropoff risk. While not the worst Bad Design Style, it still makes the list.
