Actually, it's shockingly not that painful to look at
Could be better, but still...

Claro que a ridícula nova sede da Cedae, no Rio de Janeiro, não poderia ficar de fora...

Library of Birmingham
A tacky, horrid mess, it's difficult to believe this was only just completed. I think it passes reclad Guy's Hospital in terms of the UK's ugliest building.

That isn't a skyscraper, that is a 'fake' castle-kind-of-thing.

I find them alright. The first one's modernist, though. The second is very similar to One Astor Place in Manhattan. I ate there back in 2011.

I don't think they're that bad. The second one looks like it's being renovated, which is always a plus, in my opinion. I like it when old buildings are brought back to how they looked when they first opened.

One Astor Plaza but definitely looks better than this box.
He looks like an enlarged car park house.

I saw this one in Bratislava:



I think it's suitable for this thread. But secretly I do like it a bit. Though it's in bad shape: lots of graffiti (like elsewhere in Bratislava).

I really like that one. It takes some serious balls to work in that, though.

I personally find it amazing. I've never understood why people ever saw it as ugly.
