"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.

The caption says: "Please be careful when you put revision clouds on your drawings. Some of the contractors do not understand" -
- 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?
Finally, a "mystery tool" that these workers must've been using:

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.
