Cmon, Bovin, look at the picture of the Shard you posted, do you honestly think the building behind it (Guy's Hospital Tower) is less ugly?! I should have posted that as one of my nominations. After I saw the Chrysler building nominated here, I think it's fair to say every skyscraper in the world has been nominated here..

From everything I've seen here, I'd have to say: Grand Lisboa, Abraj-al-Beit and the WestIn Hotel (what a waste!).

Wow, that in tempo tower in benidorm is one of the ugliest towers ever and that ***** in Qatar also horrible, Agbar tower and 30st Mary Axe are good dont get why they're nominated instead of scrapers like the first two and of course that WestIN hotel in nyc is total garbage

Did they demolish it or did it succumbed to gravity?
