End of the Door Knob?

In Society's quest for universal design, the round door will be legislated out of existence.  Effective next March, the City of Vancouver, with its own building code, will require lever handles on all doors and lever faucets in all new housing construction.  Perhaps the first step towards other building code jurisdictions to do the same.  See our Pinterest collection of unusual doors and door knockers.
