20 Times Architects And Designers Didn’t Listen To What People Needed And Brought These Horrible Designs To Life

Hopping on the latest trends, making objects or infrastructure look modern or stand out shouldn’t be designers’ or architects’ top priority. People do appreciate an appealing design, but they will always prioritize the layout that’s actually functional rather than just good-looking.

Every designer can make an appealing design, but it takes an experienced designer to make it functional and user-friendly too.

Not so long ago on Twitter, Sahra Sulaiman, the communities editor for Streetsblog L.A., shared a tweet saying: “The worker struggling to refill soaps in the LAX bathroom said she just wished architects and designers consulted with the workers that had to maintain the spaces about whether their form would actually be functional.” Very soon more people joined the thread to share their observations and experiences. It turned out  that Sahra was just one of the many frustrated by how unfunctional some public space designs are.
