Apple's most talented workers can't stop walking into doors

Some employees apparently came up with a fix by sticking post it notes on the glass walls, which was shortly removed by the staff as it didn't sit well with the architecture team. None of the injured employees required hospitalizations, but some were treated for minor cuts to the head.

There are apparently other markings on the glass panels to help employees, although it isn't clear if these markings are set in place by the employees or if it's a default feature of the building architecture, reads the report. In a few cases, customers have lodged legal complaints against Apple on health and safety grounds for walking into Apple's trademark glass architectures. The building, crafted by famed architect Norman Foster, immortalized a vision that Apple co-founder Steve Jobs had years earlier. Jobs has been credited for coming up with the glass pods, created to mix solo office areas with more social spaces.

The 13,000 or so employees who work in the building have to closely watch where they are going, Fortune reports. "While it is a technical marvel to make glass at this scale, that's not the achievement", Jony Ive, Apple's design chief, told the magazine in May. An Apple spokesperson declined to comment. It's not clear how many incidents there have been. The giant UFO-shaped building - the most expensive building in the USA - is sprawling glass-and-steel manifesto, a very physical manifestation of Apple's ethos to always put design first. Apple is still in the process of moving employees over to the new campus; at last count, it had permission to move in workers to 5 out of the 12 Apple Park sections. In 2012, an 83-year-old woman sued Apple after walking into a see-through door at an Apple Store and breaking her nose.
