As the architectural saying goes, “Anyone can design a bridge that stands. It takes an engineer to design a bridge that barely stands.” i know a lot of architects and engineers and I've never heard anyone say this before.
For structures that barely(or don't even) stand, look at designs by architect Frank Lloyd Wright such as Fallingwater. On the other hand, the Brooklyn Bridge was designed by an engineer and completed in 1883.
