Architects Who Had One Job And Still Failed

Having a degree and a license is not a guarantee. There are incredible architects and designers that do things that more than buildings are art. But there are others that suck. Those are the ones that we love, of course, because we can make a little fun of the ugly and stupid things they do.

We gathered fifty photos of works made by architects and designers that were definitely drunk while doing their job, on one side to have a few laughs and on the other side to warn you. Take care the next time you hire an architect or a designer and make them pass an alcohol test first.

EXTREME SPORT

reddit

In some places being handicap is a extreme sport. I have so many questions, but the main ones are: How am I supposed to go up that ramp? And why is that plant in the way?

ATM FOR GIANTS

gigazine

This guy must hate small people so much! In fact, he must hate all kinds of people, because there's no one in this world that can use that ATM properly.

MISCALCULATION

koreus

Is that thing holding the ceiling or is it a pipe that brings rain water in? Either way that is horrible and stupid, and they should take your architecture license away.

TAKE A LOOK

twitter

These balconies are not useless at all! You can use them when you have unexpected and undesired visits. Just tell them to take a look at your balcony. They won't come back if they survive.

JETSONS

imgur

Remember the Jetsons, those who were like the Flintstones but from the future? They are back! And they need a garage for their spaceships and those incredibly awesome flying hoverboards.

OBSTACLE

reddit

This guy was definitely drunk when he designed this shit. And it is even worse when you realize that this is actually a design and architect school! How on earth am I supposed to go through that thing?

HYDRANT

reddit

Let's see. The railing has the exact form of the hydrant, so this was made on purpose. This architect is a criminal! He must hate the people that live there.

NO STAIRCASE

reddit

I don't know if the guy who did this thought it would be nice to take advantage of that empty space or if he just forgot to put a staircase there.

USELESS

reddit

I love when these things go to nowhere, especially because every time I see one of these useless things, I have the urgent need of using it, even though I know It will lead me to the same place I was in.

GOOD SEATS!

boredpanda

There's a part of the stadium that will hear the football match instead of seeing it, it's like an exercise to improve your hearing skills, you will thank these guys later.

STAIRWAY TO NOWHERE

imgur

This looks like out of one of those Harry Potter movies. Maybe you have to say a secret password when you get upstairs and the wall will open or something.

TOILET

boredpanda

This architect needs therapy. That building looks exactly like a toilet with a book floating in it, isn't it? Maybe his son threw away his notes in the toilet and he needed to solve it quickly.

OBSESSION

reddit

This is not made for people with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. I don't know who did this but he should be in jail, this is so unsettling I can't even look at it.

THAT SINGLE WINDOW

reddit

That window makes me very nervous. Don't you need to know what's behind that? Is that the only bathroom in the entire building? It must be pretty busy and smelly.

SPLIT

reddit

This is what happen when you take justice to a whole new level. You were told to divide the room but you saw that if you do it the proper way you would live one side without television. Nice guy.

DOOR TO NOWHERE

boredpanda

I would have a door like that if i worked in Human Resources. If you have any complaints, I would ask you to use that door to leave. I hope there's a hole under that.

STUPIDITY LEVEL 45

bored

This is another case of justice but this time done it by an idiot. Maybe the cabinets can be moved to one side so you can open the drawers and that's awesome but still idiotic.

GROUNDED

flickr

The guy designing the indoors had an old plan and he didn't know that they were putting a window there. Or maybe this is the setting of a real life horror movie. I'm calling the police.

A BENCH

reddit

This is the way that these town found to keep the freaks out of the park. Not taking the bench out, that would be the correct way and these people don't know how to do things the correct way.

JENGA

boredpanda

You need to know when to stop. Especially if you are an architect or a builder (Or a Wire tenter, in this case) I'm sure that house moves a little when it's windy.

NARNIA

bored

Imagine that you move into a new house and you discover a stair and a door behind your closet. Or even worse: Imagine that you remove your clothes from your closet and discover a stair and a door in the house where you lived your entire life.

A BRIDGE FOR NO ONE

twitter

Building bridges is a serious thing. There are people that study their whole lives to be able to build bridges. It takes a lot of concentration and coordination. Things that this guy certainly doesn't have.

INVISIBLE STAIRS

imgur

Someone thought it would be a great idea to put this carpet on the stairs. I hope they have a great insurance, because people must fall almost every day. Or at least I would fall repeatedly.

A DINNER WITH A VIEW

imgur

If you consider that they putted the water dispenser by the table so they don't have to stand up, you can't be too surprise about the fact that their hot tub is in the middle of the house.

MISCALCULATION

emgn

At least this can be solved by changing the handles of the drawers, but I would be very pissed if this happens to me. The ultimate "You had one job".

TRANSPARENT

retailhellunderground

This was probably made by and for rich people who doesn't clean things up by themselves. Imagine having to rub that toilet to make it shine (and of course that's not the only thing that concerns me but I'm too nervous)

DOGGY STYLE

pinterest

Of course you can love dogs, I love dogs too. I also love hot dogs, Do you see that my house is a hot dog? No. But it is a great idea, can you contact me with your architect?

OLLEGE

boredpanda

There's an old saying that goes "The shoemaker's children go barefoot" I think we can change it by "The College of Architecture and Planning people doesn't know how to architect and plan"

DUCK

pinterest

I'm 99% sure that this guy didn't know that he was actually designing a duck face. I'm also sure that he still doesn't know that he designed a duck face.

LEANING BENCHS

heraldo

This is a great resource if you don't want people to sit and drink beer in front of your house every day. If they sit there, they will roll all over town.

THAT SHAPE

famepace

Oh my god. Probably the owners of this hotel didn't pay the architect what he wanted so he designed this pool shaped like a… well… like a… Lipstick? A Gun?

NOT COOL

demilked

This is probably not the best choice for a public bathroom. This is actually the worst choice ever for a public bathroom. People must walk in and scream. I would.

SAFETY FIRST

geniebelt

When you go to Architect School or whatever they surely teach you about safety. But you don't need to go to college to know that this is the most dangerous thing ever done.

CACTUSES BENCH

reddit

Does your back stitch all the time? Do you hate your mother in law and want to kill her without leaving any trace? Then these Cactuses Bench are perfect for you.

BIKEWAY

boredpanda

What's more dangerous? Using this bikeway or riding your bike in the middle of a highway? They are both equally dangerous. At least with this you can exercise your balance.

OUTLET

reddit

This is dangerous as hell and almost improbable, but the real question here is: Do you call a plumber or an electrician to solve this? We have a philosophical crossroad here.

BASKETBALL

reddit

That window looks so beautiful and clean that I can tell that is replaced periodically, probably every time that someone decides to play basketball in the front yard. Poor thing.

IN THE AIR

reddit

I want to play a game. Are you seriously desperate and need to charge your phone? Well, that's the only outlet in the whole building. And we don't have a ladder.

BURNING

imgur

"The whole building is on fire! Pull the fire alarm!" "Do you have a coin?" "What? Why? Just pull the fire alarm, idiot!" "That's what I'm trying to do, asshole!"

WHICH WAY?

twitter

I'm sure the only solution here is to lie on the floor and wait till someone saves you or to death itself, because there's no way to find this out.

functional staircase

reddit

Oh, wait, So you wanted a functional staircase? You should have told that earlier. There's no way I can figure that out by looking at your plan, there should an aclaration or something.

PIPE

reddit

The only way this could happen is if that clock is glued to the wall. And I really hope it isn't, because it is completely tilted. You had two jobs.

BALCONY

boredpanda

If you want some privacy you should buy a condo in a fancy neighborhood. There's no such thing as privacy here, we don't believe in that. We are a big community of stupid people.

FENCE

reddit

So this guy hired a company specialized in fences to do this. THIS. Exactly. I think i would do it so much better and I don't even know what a fence is.

DOOR

imgur

Yeah, I know i fucked this up, but it is barely noticing, I mean you have to be very fussy to notice this. And even more if you keep your door… ok, window, closed.

STAIRCASE

boredpanda

I don't know who is a bigger idiot: The one that designed this, or the one that spent a whole minute thinking if this stair was meant to go up or down (that particular idiot is me)

THIS DOOR

reddit

How much money does a door like that costs? They could use that money to hire a competent architect or maybe to buy a lot of pizzas for the employees.

NOPE

instagram

At first glance I thought the sign said "Nope" and that would be much more accurate. Though you need a lot of hope to go through that door. And a ladder.

BRIDGE PATTERN

cloudfront

The incredible thing about this photo is that this is not a simple bridge, this is Westminster Bridge, one of the most famous bridges in London and probably the world. A lot of people pass through it every day.
