30 Times Architects Created Something So Creative And Thoughtful That It Could Only Be Labeled As ‘Friendly Architecture’

Architecture has grown a lot since the last millennium, we can now build structures we couldn’t have thought of before. Though sometimes, when we build our cities, we would prioritize the comfort of one but sacrifice another’s. A great example of this can be seen in some cities where there are a few and narrow sidewalks but many wide roads because the welfare of the cars was put on top of that of the pedestrians.

However, that’s not the case for these examples from the Friendly Architecture subreddit. Living up to its name, this group collects sightings of structures that scream “No one is left behind.” From turtle tunnels to wheelchair-accessible gardens, this list has 30 of the friendliest structures that can surely accommodate everyone that will need them.
