Trellick is a Brutalist building so it's no surprise that it's grey it supposed to be this way and you can love this weird futuristic style. Eureka on the other hand is just mediocre postmodernism with rather cheap-looking cladding, far too big for such a poor design

The Index is one of the few skyscrapers in Dubai that I actually really like.

Sorry but then you don't know very much about the tower.

Eureka tower was built to honour the Eureka Stockade of 1854. The gold box represents the gold mined at Ballarat, and the reason for the Stockade. The red line coming from the gold box represents the blood that was spilled.

It is actually a very cleverly designed tower with real cultural significance.

I have to admit although I love Q1, Eureka Tower is damn ugly. Yes although there are FARRR uglier, it's such a disspointment with all that money and all that height they should have come up with something more elegant and beautiful looking, instead it just looks so skinny and... rubbish? Please don't get offended people have offended the Gherkin beyond belief here so I know what it feels like, but personally I just feel they could have done better..

You seriously can't complain about people nominating the Shard or the 30 St Mary Axe and then go and nominate Messeturm. Tit for tat retribution is pretty childish. If other people want to be idiots, let them. Rise above it and put forward some serious ugly contenders.
