Apple's New Spaceship HQ Building Has Glass Walls So Clear Employees Are Taking Headers
And therein lies the problem- Apple employees keep crashing into the fancy glass windows, which calls into the question the safety of the design. The building's design was crafted by famed architect Norman Foster, taking major cues from Apple co-founder Steve Job's vision for the new headquarters.
Bloomberg's Mark Bergen reports on a flaw at Apple's new headquarters: Distracted employees seem to keep smacking their faces into the ideal glass panes that make up the offices' interior workspaces, and they're hurting themselves, "according to people familiar with the incidents". That's resulted in repeated cases of distracted employees walking into the panes, according to people familiar with the incidents.
Surrounding the Cupertino, California-based building are 45-foot tall curved panels of safety glass.

Some employees even came up with an interim fix to the problem of smacking their heads into the glass walls by sticking Post-It notes to mark their presence. However, another worker said other markings were already in place to identify the glass. Apple apparently was not real keen on that and had them removed, as pieces of yellow paper stuck to beautifully and clear windows negatively affected the aesthetics. After the unveiling of the first look, the campus architecture was praised by fans and publications for its sleek appearance. "The achievement is to make a building where so many people can connect and collaborate and walk and talk".
As someone who regularly runs into stuff, I can personally confirm that walls, not people are to blame in this situation, and likely the whole things is more a source of brief personal embarrassment for those involved.
The "dumbass walks into a glass door" bit is so hack that it was on Two and a Half Men before Charlie Sheen went all AIDS-crazy and tried to strangle Chuck Lorre or whatever.
