Magento 2 architecture completely different from Magento 1, so we can't simply copy and paste the extension.

In M1

app/code/local or community pool to carry all the custom extensions.

but in M2


will carry our custom extensions.

There is an file structural changes as well like namespaces and module structure also differs from each other. Take a look at this Magento 2 Extension Development devdocs
