Although I respect your opinion.. but the Gherkin?! Really?! I think it's the most BEAUTIFUL skyscraper in the whole of Europe (hence why it won so many awards in 2004!)

Grand Lisboa

Torre Velasca (Italy) defination of uglyness
MetLife Building (New York) worst skyline destroyer on earth
Abraj Al-Bait (Mecca) Worlds premium shape-fail. It looks like a christian church from most views - if you ignore the half moon on the pinacle...
