This Week in Bad Architecture: Sliding Into the Grave

This is another slide I use in my "Architecture 101" deck. The point that I make about this particular picture is that architecture is not just about performance. In this example, both the slide and the gravesite perform exactly as they should. Architecture is also about the broader context in which we build solutions.

That said, having a gravesite to point to would be handy when I'm trying to get my kid to play safely at the playground.
