Towers of Garisenda and Asinelli, Bologna, Italy

They were built in 1109. Due to non-compliance with construction technologies, both towers have a noticeable slope. The Garisenda Tower (48 meters) was shortened three times due to its slope. The Asinelli Tower (97 meters) is the tallest "leaning tower in the world". For comparison, the height of the Leaning Tower of Pisa is only 57 meters.

Qiyi City Forest Garden Residential Complex, Chengdu, China

Alas, this impressive project has failed. As planned, the complex with real gardens on the balconies was supposed to improve the ecological situation in the area, but potential residents were scared off by the number of insects attracted by the plants. Qiyi City Forest Garden now looks like a post-apocalyptic movie set.

The Tablets of Georgia

Six 6-meter high granite slabs installed in Georgia, USA, commissioned by an anonymous client. They are engraved with inscriptions in 8 different languages, which are instructions-instructions to the inhabitants of the future, who will restore civilization after the apocalypse. The monument also functions as a calendar, compass and clock. A capsule with a message to descendants is buried next to him.
