78 Architects Who Had One Job And Still Failed

These days most of us live in houses, apartments, flats, studios or inside any other kind of structure that has walls, windows, and a roof. Since people no longer need to carve our living quarters in caves or build a hut from clay, architecture design and engineering became almost the most important professions that we know. Everybody needs a place to live, right?

Being an architect is a pretty tough job. There’s little room for error, and any mistakes that you do make are going to be there on display for all to see for as long as the thing you designed is standing. But as you can see from these funny fails compiled by Bored Panda, some architects are determined to leave their mark on the world in one way or another. Sure they screwed up, but hey, at least you’ll remember their masterpieces of modern architecture!

From garage doors finding their way on the third floor of an apartment building, many engineering fails concerning stairs and of course, miscellaneous epic fails of grandiose scale – you’ll find it all and many more in this list. Feel free to add your own funny pictures, and don’t forget to vote for your favorite design fails!#1

Fun, but as an Architect I must say that almost none of these have anything to do with architecture. We dont build. This is the result of builder not using an Architect and obviously not filing for approval. Most would be illegal alteration gone wrong. Proper title would be “15 Builder who obviously needed an Architect” but the is one of those that puzzles me .
