Building Design Flaws
Oct. 13, 2011
In a major design flaw a Spanish architect and a building contractor constructed an apartment house that has a stairway to nowhere, complete with mini handrail, and an inaccessible balcony.
The building contractor blamed the mistakes on the architect. The architect insisted the contractor should have realized the stairs had nowhere to go and that there was no access to the balcony on the side of the building.
The bank that financed the project threatened to sue both for negligence and gross stupidity.
A bystander suggested a duel between the architect and the contractor.
