citigroup center is a lovely building, to be honest it's actually one of my favourites. there are many fugly buildings in NY which come to mind, but one certainly stands out (yes yes, we all know it ...): the verzion building! for me, it's the undisputed no.1 skyscraper of pure ugliness.

Citigroup is a pretty nice building. However, it must be the white color and black lines which cause your dismay.
Anything white with horizontal black lines will not resonate well in your vision. No lines would be better, even in Toronto theyre recladding their horizontal-striped tallest

Some people have the opinion that the new design for 2WTC (200 Greenwich Street), which was unveiled last June, will ruin the skyline of Lower Manhattan... perhaps forever.

1 WTC does it on its own, anyway. What a turd of a design for what's supposed to be a symbol of freedom for America.

That's your personal view. I find it to be pretty generic and overall shitty.

Second pic is the worst angle I've seen. Looks so plump and bottom heavy. Doesn't defy gravity at all. It makes tall look difficult to accomplish.

Massive. Powerful. A little touch of America in europe. Still only a million square feet only looks big in its context (by being out of context with surroundings). Building to the far right seems much worse ( not surprising ).

London doesn't have a skyline so not much to ruin really.

The Walkie Talkie looks cartoonish, in my opinion; sometimes architecture that might suit Abu Dhabi doesn't transport well to London.

It at least ruins the WTC cluster.
Verizon, mentioned in post 85 is just fine, IMO.
