The Epic Failure: Tower of Pisa

By: Liam Porter Browne

History of the Project

The leaning tower of Pisa was built in 1360. Construction started in 1173. The construction was interrupted several times by wars. The leaning tower of Pisa was actually supposed to be a bell tower originally. No one knows the real architects of the leaning tower. The Leaning Tower is now a tourist hotspot. The leaning tower of Pisa was also not just going to be a bell tower but a cemetery as well.

Why it Failed

The Failure

The leaning tower of Pisa is leaning because the interruptions because over time, and waiting because of the war, the ground got soft under the foundation. The foundation was not deep enough, and it was also built on clay ground.
