Sorry, but I think you really have bad taste or don't know anything about architecture. Just a Joke

I had to google this one as I needed to see which one was the tower that was being nominated! First glance I thought it was some real Frankenstein of a building and would have won my votes if it was. As it is it is just an oddly placed and over-scaled clocktower looking building.

What's the criteria for ugliness?
Based on design & architecture, or because it's worn down and dilapidated?
