Some people on here don't realise the definition of "ugly", the empire state, Chrysler and Gherkin are some of the most beautiful skyscrapers these cities have. And the Gherkin doesn't ruin the London skyline, because it had NO skyline to begin with but the grey/ugly Tower 42, I can think of 100 buildings uglier than the Gherkin in London, hence why it won the 2004 Sirling prize and is now the most expensive office space in London due to it's popularity. Some people are just too ignorant to look past the boring blocks that dominate Chicago or Sao Paulo..

Some real beuties in here getting slated when there's 1000 much uglier around.
That said, I really love the Torre Velasca and it's steampunk opressive design.

Somehow I'm thinking you can't nominate bridges for the ugliest skyscraper tournament... can someone please clarify with me what buildings can actually be nominated with regard to the buildings height? I don't see the point in nominating buildings that won't be counted! Thanks!

The left and center ones are fairly ugly, though there's plenty of boxy international style skyscrapers around the world that are much uglier than those.

That Gherkin Egg known as 30 St. Mary Axe is so London imo.

Some of you are so comical. ALL skyscrapers are phallic in nature.

You DON`T KNOW NOTHING, I MEAN NOTHING, CERO, NONE,NADAAAAA About architecture , Ok your post it is a TOTAL INSULT- to skyscraper world history.

Ok guys this Nomination start bad since. first of all their should be several "categories" just as in the oscar.

Ugliest skyscraper divided by:

-Modern or Recently build -ugliest. (here buildings which a lot of money was invested in just a horrible shape - for example lisboa hotel or the elephant or that wanna-be big ben in dubai)

-Ugliest from the past (30 yrs or older)

-Cheap buildings. buldings who where never intended to be build for being a "luxury office" or a city icon, but just a big apparment complex still the cheap investment, ugly arquitecture combined with null maintainance equals a horrible eye sore, for example those apaprtments in sao paulo or the building in milan.
