    It may have cost 8 million dollars but there wasn’t 8 million dollars of work done.

    this is what happens when a pool costs 8 million, but only 3 are spent building it. This is the corruption result.

    I am surprised there wasnt one car with a camera driving by when that happened. Id love to see the video of the water rushing out.

    the engineer must have forgotten to calculate for the weight of the water! it hardly looks like it would have stood empty, let alone with water at 8 lbs per gallon.

    Water pity. The architect’s career is washed up. Maybe he he should have pooled his talent with others. But now his reputation is tanked. But it’s a fluid situation. Soon it will all be water under the bridge. Then his career will be going swimmingly well again.

    How funny… they’ve made the pool’s floor 30 cms thick and placed the pilars 5 meters from each one.

    I’m not an engineer, but the failure here it’s astonishing.

    See, there’s your problem. You have to make sure your crossbars can carry the weight, not just the columns…

    Apparently they used the same engineering company that built Chernobyl.

    my guess: the architects were good, but some builders decided, that some of the metal bars and cement is better spend on their house or dacha.

    At least it was empty,eight pounds per gallon or over sixty pounds per cubic foot.

    by cheap LED spotlights on walls you can judge how they were economical on rest materials
