Hire a professional next time! These bizarre design flaws will leave you baffled
It’s always much easier to criticize someone else’s work and say what you would have done better than starting a project from scratch.
But looking at some of these outlandish designs fails from around the world, collected in a gallery by Bored pandait’s hard to imagine you would do much worse.
Some of the choices made when these designs were put together will leave you scratching your head.
For example, there is a slide in a children’s play park that splits into three, which is certainly waiting to injure someone.
Or how about the sustainably powered parking meter in an underground garage that happens to run on sunlight.
How could you beat this metal, locked gate? Scale it? Using metal blades to destroy the integrity of the lock? Or maybe… just walk along the side
Then there was a gate at the bottom of a flight of stairs – but no connecting gate, meaning any intruder could easily walk around it.
Meanwhile, it looks like a bizarre slide that splits into three during gameplay could cause serious injuries.
Here, FEMAIL shares some of the most baffling and hilarious design flaws you’re likely to see…
Thought to be in a North American bathroom, this toilet roll holder is in the perfect spot… if you’re a giant with arms that can bend around walls, that is.
This sign, presumably in the US, illustrates the importance of punctuation when it comes to sign design
Being more environmentally friendly is great… it’s just a little hard to understand how this meter, thought to be in a Canadian underground garage, is going to run on solar power
Surely someone must have thought about what this children’s slide at Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm in Clevedon would look like before closing it down?
Spotted in what is believed to be an Eastern European location, the mirrored ceiling in this bathroom offers people taking a bathroom break very little privacy
This bizarre slide (which appears to be modeled after a banana peel) looks like it could cause serious damage to anyone who plays on it
Perhaps in this case it is unfair to blame the designer, and more appropriate to comment on the user error, of using the tiny peephole…instead of the giant pane of glass to look through
Another day, another piece of New Zealand signage destroyed because no one thought about placement…
Another example of how a few extra minutes during the design process would have produced a much better result. How many older children do they expect to use this toilet?
