On The Bright Side, It Has A Great View

Walkies!!!

Walkies!!!

OK here’s the thing dumbass Spanish architects. When you decide to add an additional 47 storeys to your 20 storey building you should always remember to factor in a redesign of the elevator system. Just saying. Now anyone wanting to go beyond floor 20 has to use the stairs . Bummer. The architects working on the project have all resigned.

It Could Be….

OK loons, I don’t want to get you too excited because I know how easily disappointed you all can get (oh and yes, downright skeptical ) but some lounge chair lizard has found a building on Mars.Yeah now see, stop rolling your eyes. David Martines found it while searching on Google Mars the coordinates are: 71 49’19.73″N 29 33’06.53″W if you don’t believe him.

Psst Hmm, if anything, it does make you think if there are other life forms out there they have  incredibly bad taste in architecture too!

Now That’s A Fine Waste of Money!

OMG, after spending $421 million on a state court building in the middle of one of the poorest areas in the Bronx 2 years ago, guess what? It’s friggin imploding. Yep, the ceilings are leaking, glass windows have been boarded, stairs have been yellow police taped, sewage is seeping, flies are infesting, air condition ain’t working and the underground parking has been cordoned off because the ceiling is sinking. What’s worse is there are up to 37 friggin lawsuits flying back left, right and center as the blame game begins. Go on, take a pick, contractors, subcontractors, testing companies, architects, construction managers, the city or the project manager, who’s to blame? The 775,000-square-foot, sleek glass Bronx Hall of Justice building was designed by Rafael Viñoly Architects and was intended to spruce up the area but instead has become a friggin “Bronx Hall of horrors”.

Psst To top it all off, the building took two extra years to complete and was $121 million over budget.
