It is always much easier to criticize other people’s work and say what they could have done better than to start a project from scratch.
But looking at some of these fancy designs from around the world, collected in one gallery, fails Bored pandaIt’s hard to imagine you could do much worse.
Some of the decisions made when putting together these designs will leave you scratching your head.
For example, in a children’s playground, there is a slide that divides into three parts and is definitely just waiting to hurt someone.
Or how about the sustainable parking meter in an underground parking lot that happens to be powered by sunlight.
How could you beat that metal locked gate? scale? Metal blades used to destroy the lock’s integrity? 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.

This bizarre chip (which appears to be modeled after a banana peel) looks like it could do 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 user error for using the tiny peephole… instead of the large window to look through
Another day another piece of New Zealand signage vandalized because no one thought to post it…
Another example of how a few extra minutes during the design process would have resulted in a much better result. How many older children are expected to use this toilet?
