Even if you do think that, it’s clearly not anywhere near the ugliest in the world. Not even top 100 by a long shot. It's pointless to nominate Messeturm or the Gherkin because they will lose in the first round to something that is genuinely ugly. It's just pointless, and a wasted opportunity to nominate something genuinely bad.

You seem to be one of the very few people hating on this building's design, I along with many people think it is awesome and really unique. I personally cant think of a reason to hate on the design of this building. To each his own I guess.

Because I don't believe it will turn out looking so great as it does in the render! yes it's unique in that picture but I am just in disbelief that something that unorthodox can turn out good haha. Don't worry I wouldn't nominate it in the top 100 ugliest but deffo not in the top 50 best

quite, and that's why the same thing can be said though, isn't it just ridiculous to nominate the gherkin or the shard as one of the ugliest buildings on the planet?

indeed mate, but have you realised the fact that this thread kind of gives the haters a massive opportunity to eliminate some of the finest buildings in london?

We have to admit, if he shall let the others nominate St.Axe he should be allowed to nominate Messetower. Both are of course not the most ugliest builings in the world.

The main reason is, why many buildings are nominated which are sure not the ugliest buildings is.

Frist- It is impossible to know every building in the world. Thats why there is a nomination thread. Different people from the world with different knowledges can introduce unknown towers.

Second- some buildings stand for different styles or worthes or whatever. If you have serious problem with Brutalism - and it seems obvious that many people here have one - you may nominate one of the most important and main buildings of this style, a buildings that had a huge impact on this style and on following buildings - for example Torre Valesca. It is not typical SSC, as complained in this thread, that people are haters or idiots, if they nominate thoose buildings, unfortunatley it is typical SSC, that people are bashed as trolls or irgnorant, if the don't share same tastes or opinions.
SO143s hate on Frankfurt (for whatever reason) and his love for glass claddings are well known in this forum. So I am sure he is close to a heart attack if he sees the Messetower - the "landmark" tower of Frankfurt and a symbol for anti-class-cladding - on a picture, so for him its one of the ugliest things around, as for other people is St.Axe or Valesca.

Third: Some towers, who may work well as a single tower, have some bad impacts on the skyline and towers around. This contribute to a bad overall appearance. My nomination -MetLife building- is as a single tower sure not the ugliest peace of work you find in this world, but I don't know a tower that destroys the surrounding skyline with the same impact. Most towers around or nearby are elegant and slim - like chrysler - and suddenly between them there is a gigantig, grey shaded and boring domino-brick

I think it is also the ugliest city in the world.
Coming from a person living in an "One of the least liveable (Most leaveable??) Cities in the world". I can understand the frustration!

So what? What does living in the 7th least favourite place to live have to do with how ugly he sees a building? Either way it is a bloody ugly building.

Yup it's ugly but mwahmed saying that it's one of the ugliest cities in the world...is laughable ....I doubt if he has taken a complete tour of his country?..?. He should ...would clear lots of his doubts.....staying on the topic though...Antilia is even not liked by us Indians...buh ..however the image posted is theone uc and not the finished product.
