Seven colossal architectural blunders.


Readers!
 
For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
 
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.

 

Please consider donating by giving either a one-time contribution or a regular subscription, as outlined in the tip jar below.

You can also support me by buying one of my books, as noted in the boxes interspersed throughout the webpage. And if you buy the books through the ebookit links, I get a larger cut and I get it sooner.

Seven colossal architectural blunders.

The last is the best, but not for the reasons you’d expect.

    Is building design #6 an “inadvertent blunder” or commentary?

  • Fun fact about the Leaning Tower: The colonnades above the third story were successively offset to counter the lean, giving the tower a slightly convex appearance.

    The problem is that the lean did not stop and at least until the last retrofit took place it kept leaning more each year.
