Design of Brisbane Paralympic centre of excellence features bizarre spiral ... trends now
Brisbane's Paralympic Centre of Excellence has raised eyebrows after Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk unveiled a design that prominently features a spiral staircase which will be inaccessible to wheelchair users.
The centre, to be built ahead of the city's hosting of the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games, will include a wheelchair and prosthetics workshop as well as dedicated testing facilities and international standard sport venues.
But the centre at the University of Queensland's St Lucia campus bizarrely includes a steep, spiral staircase.
However the University say the centre and the adjoining Health and Recreation Centre, where the staircase is, will both be fully accessible.
