What happens when two stubborn parties meet and refuse to compromise? Awesomeness!
What you are looking at is the Hanshin Expressway in Japan taking a shortcut through the 5th and 7th floors of the Fukushima Gate Tower. Rumor has it that back in 1992 the city planners allocated the space that the tower was to stand on for an expressway. The owner of the land was furious and refused to change his plan to build a new tower.
This is what happened when they finally reached an agreement.
