It's not a permanent type of tent. These are the same tents that are put up all the time for events and conventions. I don't thing the zig zagging is necessarily for ADA. It seem to only be at one entrance/exit not the other and I don't think the height would require that much distance for a ramp. Looking at the steps on the entrance to the left it looks to be 3-4 at most.That zig zagging ramp is built that way to meet accessibility building codes. The widening at the top is to accommodate the door clearance requirements. If it were a 'staff' entrance they could technically get away with not having to do a ramp and could of done stairs. This makes me believe it is more of a public access area. Of course, if this tent is more permanent then it would make sense to have all exits/entrances accessible for future uses and flexibility. I guess we will know in just a few days now.
That image was taken at the same time as TCM which had no facade either yet. There could be something that's going around that zig zag walkway. If it were simply just a means to acces the tent I don't think it would be painted all black like that. Perhaps the facade is going at the entrance to the ramp?ADA ramps are deceiving. Just 4 feet of rise requires 48 feet of linear feet of ramp. Plus every 12 feet a landing. Tough to tell in the images but that ramp could meet those dimensions if each long length is close to 12 feet with the turns being the landings.
Anyways, no matter why the ramp is there it is there. Personally, after further review I think it will be the exit. I think they would have built a facade already if it was the entrance. With only 2 weeks left for construction building a decent facade around the ramp may be difficult, unless it was a flat graphic image.
This is what I was thinking. Also a few things I noted looking at the photos. In the newer photos more switchbacks were added (5), lighting was added along the path between MiB and B&T, I am guessing people could enter through the door at the back of the MiB queue or they could run the queue all the way around MiB (that seems less likely to me).Got the answer.
That switchbacked ramp is the house entrance.
Also, the back ramp along perimeter road is the exit.
