Construction Mistakes.

Construction Mistakes.

What shall we call these, construction mistakes or errors or goof ups? What ever we call it, it won't change a thing and still these look hilarious. Its quite surprising to see these and we really wonder how the engineers and architects who were part of these constructions must have reacted seeing them.

When we first saw this bridge, we thought it to be shopped. But later we knew how wrong we were: 'Survey-scale inaccuracy or positioning errors can lead to costly construction mistakes such as bridge misalignment. Image courtesy of Zurich U.S.'

We really wonder what was in the mind of the engineers when they went ahead with these stairs and where they wanted it to connect.

Construction Mistake (30) 5For using these stairs, one needs to use the windows.

I swear I've made all of these in The Sims.

These all make perfect sense to me. But then again, I'm M.C. Escher.

The first one is shopped. There is no way any construction firm would have gotten a road so far along without discovering the problem of alignment. There are two columns holding the road. At a juncture there would only be one column and the roads are finished with paving and lines.

That first one is bsolute bull, there is no way they would set out 2 supports that close to one another so offline.

You were right the first time about the bridge, it isn't real.

I think the attribution is just crediting the people who created the image (note that it says image rather than photograph). It doesn't give any location or further details.

Ask yourself a couple of questions:
Why are there lines painted on an unfinished bridge?

Why are there two support columns so close together?

Add in the fact that the texture of the concrete is too smooth.

It looks to me like something someone put together for a presentation.

yeah its shopped but the misalligned bridged did happen on the germany/swiss border once due to the survyers being on two different datums

First one isn't photoshopped, it's not even real. 3D modeling all the way!
