Americans with Disabilities Act in Relations to Infrastructure Access Across the Globe

So I was checking out this thread http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1548640, and liked the design, but struck me was that there is no way a handicapped or person using wheels could access those steps. In the U.S. most if not all developments have to be accessible to people in wheelchairs or scooters.

So I'm making this thread to see what the SSCers thoughts are on how infrastructure in other countries makes wheelchairs/scooters/etc accessible.....

Nice pics below, but no scooter is going to be climbing thme steps ...yet anwya...

The site is situated on the previous location of the famous San theatre, which has now disappeared; at the heart of the centre of Istanbul, nearby Taksim, Harbiye and Nisantasi, which are the main prestigious retail areas of the city.

DESCRIPTION:
The project is conceived as an innovative mixed complex with retail, cultural, hotel and office functions.
This development distinguishes itself from other mixed complexes by its specific theme dedicated to fashion and developed in partnership with renowned brands , by its organic, fully modular architecture, that can be adapted to the evolving needs defined by brands. Further typical features of the project are embodied by the presence of a public cultural function (new theatre), the creation of event areas, restaurants and a spa with a rooftop swimming pool surrounded by gardens and offering a panoramic view on Istanbul.
The altitude difference characterising the site allows for the creation of three half buried levels of retail areas and of 6 underground parking levels with room for more than 1600 vehicles.
