This room is a nightmare.

Ever walk into a room and wonder what the heck the architect was thinking? A poorly designed space - the fridge in the middle of the room, or a sink smashed up against a door - can be frustrating and anxiety producing.

Enter Cursed Architecture.

A Twitter account that's been around for about seven months, Cursed Architecture collects examples of, well, bad architecture and egregious design goofs. And all of them will fill you with despair.

Cursed Architecture features poorly patterned tiles...

...along with weirdly apportioned rooms.

And a whole array of strangely situated toilets.

A lot of the bad architecture is stark and lifeless.

And others operate almost like optical illusions.

The bulk of the posts on the account, though, are just truly unfortunate choices.

And some are bad solutions to serious problems.

The person running the Cursed Architecture Twitter account didn't immediately respond to INSIDER's request for comment. We hope he's not trapped in a bathroom with an optical illusion tile pattern.
