For some reason, I really like this one (located in Ransom Canyon near Lubbock, Texas, USA, and designed by Robert Bruno):

Wow, this building really confuses me! I find it revolting, but enticing at same time! It's ugly, but beautifully executed! I want to know more about it, but I wouldn't save a picture of it on my computer! It inspires really conflicting feelings. I love that it exist, but I don't want to have anything to do with it!

Wow, it's beautiful! It has that art-nouveau feel for me. Definitely one of the coolest houses of the 1970s.

The interior is also very sculptural, but I feel something much more can be done with it.

The tallest university building in the world, now and ever, since its inception in 1949. Stands at 183 m, the spire adds to 240 m.

By the way, we have quite similar thread, but only for posting more kinky examples. So feel free to visit and contribute:

While the University is definitely amazing, I like the Ministry of Foreign Affairs better

The library is very impressive. I love the cubic house in Holland. Some great finds there

It's an observation tower, but there's a museum underneath it.
