30 Times Architects And Engineers Created Weird Building Designs

Published 2 years ago

Most architects aim to design buildings that are practical, aesthetically beautiful, and durable, and they follow certain plans and codes to achieve that result. However, some architects like to ditch the norms and experiment with things.

The Facebook group called ‘That’s It, I’m Architecture Shaming” shares bizarre and oddly-designed buildings to shame bad architects. Personally, I like how some of these buildings look, some of them even seem like a work of art to me. However, not everyone has the same opinion! Check out some of the weirdest building designs posted by the group in the gallery below. And if you want to see more of these pictures, check out our previous posts here and here.

#27 Someone Recently Posted The National Fisheries Development Board Building In Hyderabad, India

welp, i think i found the artist’s rendering of what it was originally intended to look like…and while originally i thought it was odd but kinda cool, now i find it shameful, because it could have (and apparently, should have) looked like this.

(rendering on top, actual on bottom.)
