How many doors do we walk through every day without even noticing them? Most people regard doors just as things to pass through on the way to somewhere interesting and beautiful (like, for instance, the Walker Art Gallery). We probably only notice them if they are too awkward, slow or heavy to get through easily, especially if we're hindered by heavy shopping or a pushchair.

As part of ongoing improvements to the Walker, the old revolving doors at the entrance have been replaced by sleek automatic glass ones. You probably wouldn't notice the difference from the outside:

However, inside the light flooding through the large glass panels make the entrance foyer seem much lighter, bigger and altogether more pleasant.
