Whether we're talking about the subreddit Crappy Design or the Instagram account Ugly Irish Houses, the Internet seems obsessed with tasteless crimes against aesthetics and functionality. If you are too, the Twitter account "Cursed Architecture" is right up your alley.

Its hellish content includes strange angles, melting paint, vaguely threatening toilets, stairs that lead to nowhere, and more. Basically, the kind of stuff that architects and interior designers would imagine in a horror-comedy. But believe me, you don't have to be an industry pro to appreciate these pictures. They're so bad, us regular folk will get them as well. Enjoy!

It's in Sao Paulo, Brazil. If you look up Edificio Copan (Copan Building) online, you can see three sets of these stairs on the back of the building. It is also an interesting fact that around 5,000 people live in the 1,160 apartments of this building.

It took me a minute to find the structural mistake. Where the staircase meets the building, there is an opening on each floor to get on the stairs. This doesn't match up when you try to enter the staircase. Big drop off on your first step.
