I need help with this proposal I'm starting to believe I choose a hard topic. What I need is for you to read the following and suggest what an architect would look for in improving the doors to the university library (university of Louisville). Could you help me make my argument more technical and concise? How can I articulate these ideas in to a brief explanation to establish motive for the improvement? And do you feel that my suggestions are grounds for improving or replacing the doors.
if there is anything you think i need to address please let me know. i attached this as a word document so you can read it better.
The order in which we should draft our proposal:

There are four double doors on front of the library and they seem to pivot slightly in ward when opening. The odd pivot opening of the door makes the doors vary heavy and awkward to open.

The problem: The front doors to the library. Write a short paragraph (25 words or less) indicating the problem.
II. Describe the problem
Describe three different examples of the problem. I need to figure out three concrete reasons that the doors should be altered or replaced.
1. Congestion: the doors are really heavy and sometimes the inability to open them causes a congested flow of traffic in and out of them. The doors do not open up very wide.
2. Inconvenience for the handicapped: because the handicapped doors are being used by others patrons to avoid having to use the heavy doors provided.

3. Possible physical strain caused by the extreme heaviness of the doors
We will research these more thoroughly before presenting them in our final draft

this is how i feel about the doors as you can tell im in over my head, after all im a biology major, so please help.

For many library patrons the doors to front entrance are very difficult to manage. The doors are very heavy and open in an awkward pivot. This design of the doors makes the entrance small and thus congested. Many patrons choose to use the handicapped doors so they don't have to muscle the heavy doors.
