When Construction Goes Wrong

"QUANTUM SHOT" #262

Hilarious Building Blunders

When you have workers who don't care for what they're building, and architects with very little common sense, then you'd better not panic when you see results. Mournful cries like "Oh No!", "You've ruined it!", "Can it possibly be rebuilt??" are not going to help, while a simple "Oops!" would also sound like a gross understatement. In many cases the architectural horrors shown on this page were left "as is", without any fixes. The tenants and businesses moved into these structures, leaving passerbyes and photographers to marvel at their idiotic construction.

First let's get an obvious Photoshop job out of the way - the builders may have finally build something out of Escher's bad dream:



Stairs into nothing - a classic blunder:





















If builders had a little more to drink, the stairs might've turned into a modern art sculpture ("Revolutions", located in Montreal):



Situation with doors is just as dire. They would not open, lead anywhere, or even exist...



Especially when the slogan above the door reads "Have a Successful Working Day!"



or "Sales Center", apparently with a very poor sales record:



Same thing with balconies:

An insurmountable challenge - to properly align windows:







Even harder is to make the ends meet...





We really hope that the picture above is photoshop :)
Speaking of bridges... some would require an extra support:





Things got in the way? Just build around them!





The caption says: "Please be careful when you put revision clouds on your drawings. Some of the contractors do not understand" -



Driveway Oops:







Crazy Garages:



Wrong Placement:

- of heaters and air-conditioners:





- of ATM:



- of camera:



- of toilets:





The only power outlet is on ... the ceiling:



They've been building something for months... Now the Final Results are here! Get yourself a tranquilizer:







Do you think this ad is a pure fantasy?



Think again:



Finally, a "mystery tool" that these workers must've been using:



Sources: offtop.ru/misi, exler.ru, karaul.ru, Ezzprezzo

Most of the other images came from sites and emails which did not credit the original photographers. Please help us to find out this information, so that we could include the credits.
