I am not aware if Ambani wants to add more weirdness to the building. The building looks as shown in the photo as of date.

Why get offended by him saying it's an ugly. It certainly isn't pretty, nor does it try to be. It's a functional, gargantuan city, and an incredible city at that - just not pretty.

There are so many ugly sckyscrapers that it's so, so difficult to nominate only 3. I'm gonna say just one, from my country... 'Torres Colón' in Madrid, it's awful!

1. TM Tower, Kuala Lumpur - Yawn. Boring design
2. Shard - It is just poor and bald.
3. UN building, New York - Just awful like organisation itself))). It is so ugly, it cracked "Daily Mirror".

UN Building is a symbol of 50's modernist architecture, looks beautiful for me.

Yep, that'd be right up there. It even has Colon in it's name (sort of).

Hideous building.

Sorry, but I think you really have bad taste or don't know anything about architecture.
New Orleans is a beautiful Residential Highrise (158 meters)
