Man has created some of the most incredible structures in the world. But these remarkable feats haven’t come without errors, here is the list of 10 of The Biggest Architecture Fails Ever.
10: The Savar Building
Considered to be the deadliest garment factory disaster in history. The Savar building in Rana Plaza in Bangladesh collapsed on April 24th, 2013 from structural failure and killed over 1100 people. When cracks had emerged on the walls the day before on the eight-story commercial building, businesses and a bank on the lower floors evacuated. But the garment workers were ordered to return to work the next day. The building collapse includes illegal construction on a pond adding three additional stories without modifying the permit and the building went from being used for commercial to industrial thus putting more stress on the building.

9: Citigroup Center
This is a skyscraper that looks like it was built on stilts. The structure was built in 1977 by William Lemessurier, who ran into a problem when the land was shared by Saint Peter’s Lutheran church who were unwilling to move. So, Lemessurier designed a skinny base of the skyscraper with the winds in mind. However, he forgot to take into consideration that there were quarter winds too and the base was bolted down instead of welded. So, Citigroup arranged to have a secret emergency plan for the Red Cross in the quiet of the night workers fix problems with the building in secret but should there ever be a strong storm with powerful winds. The Skyscrapers have a high chance of going down.
