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.

Why do the apartment buildings never have nearly enough residential parking spaces? Why make the driveways so narrow that not even a garbage truck can pass through to collect the dumpsters? 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.

25 Insanely Creative Tattoos That Transform When The Person’s Body Moves

Elbows and kneecaps are perhaps the most challenging (and painful) body parts to tattoo. People seldom opt to tattoo over joints because those tattoos fade faster as they are in constant motion and don’t have the same time to heal. Hence, instead of tattooing over the joints, many opt to tattoo around them. Although this comes with its own challenges, it’s a pretty ‘grateful’ location for some funky and creative designs that ink-lovers are often drawn to.

This is where ‘moving tattoos’ come in place. Moving tattoos are those that transform as the person moves. The design and placement are rather tricky because the artist must ensure that the design follows and flows along the lines and contours of the body when it’s moving. It’s easier shown than explained, so take a look at some quirky and original tattoo designs that reveal their essence when the canvas moves.
