Basketbar by NL Architects

First of all, that is actually the name of this building. Second, the Basketbar is great mockitecture. From what I gather, in Europe, Universal Design and Accessibility are not as important as in the US. Burdened with the reality of making the student dormatory handicap accessible, NL Architects came up with this award winning solution. They made the ramp not only wheelchair accessible, but also skateboard accessible. Then they painted it orange. Brilliant.
