Generally speaking, WordPress is not designed to allow users to put in arbitrary HTML. Normal people don’t do HTML, they do text, paragraphs, etc. The wpautop function is there for them.
If you need to do custom HTML on a page as a one-off, then you might be better off creating a custom Page Template in your theme and modifying the HTML of the page directly that way. It’s easier and less intrusive into the overall system than fiddling with turning off pieces of the WordPress core functionality.
