In creating building designs, architects and engineers must take a lot of things into consideration – not just the actual look of the building but things like the material that should be used for its construction, the proper foundation it needs with respect to its size, how it can withstand strong winds and storms, how drainage and utilities work, and many other aspects.
Such could be very difficult to fulfill but because they study these things, then they are expected to get these things right – most especially huge, multi-million projects. More often than not, in these types of jobs, several people work on the design to get everything right; and this is exactly the reason why we could not understand why there are buildings that become major failures in architectural design.
We couldn’t help but ask how these teams of brilliant minds could have missed important aspects that they should have taken into account during the design process!
Take for example the tall apartment building above which toppled on its side. Seeing how small the foundations of this building are, one could only imagine the condition of the other buildings in the area that look very similar to the fallen one! I wouldn’t want to be any of the people who would buy a unit from any of those buildings, that’s for sure…
How about the bridge which was so badly made that during construction, it was already nicknamed as the ‘Galloping Bridge’? The construction workers were afraid of the fate of this bridge. True enough, just a few months after it was opened for use, the structure collapse! Scary…
But perhaps the scariest of all is the Sampoong Department store which collapsed to the ground, killing hundreds of shoppers and injuring thousands others!
Considering that most of us do not have a hand at designing and creating these and similar buildings around us, we could only hope and pray that the ones we do go into won’t turn into a disaster like these ones!
