Don't worry Thanial, people here like to look past the boring blocks of NYC and Chicago and rather go for mild buildings which they are simply jealous of..

The Marina Bay is spoilt by the ridiculous sky park, why does it reach out one end, but not the other, it looks ugly imho. Remove the sky park and it is just three boring towers.

Remove the nice light show from the flame towers and they are just three stumpy and fat penguins, nothing special at all, again imho. If you have to rely on lights to make something look good, you've already lost.

it's simply posting the worst quality images of Velasca Tower in Milan and saying it's ugly.
yes, it's not the best tower in the world, but I really don't understand how someone can say that this is the "definition of uglyness"..:

Sears Tower - decent for a horror movie.



Revolution Tower, Panama Cit - a tasteless combination of the upper and the lower parts.

Tour Montparnasse, Paris - the eye sore for all who likes Paris.

I can't believe what I'm reading... I respect your opinion in not liking the sky part (I personally loved it, but I can see why others would dislike it), but when there are concrete blocks from the 80s in the world, why would this (and Flame Towers) deserve a nomination? Also, what the hell does imho mean?

Sorry world, but we will not let you pull Torre Velasca down. I respect tastes, when they are supported by knowledge.

Tower Velasca is perfectly integrated in the architecture of the center of Milan. You find it on school books in Italy, as an example of a building combining old and new architecture. Its shape recalls the Castello Sforzesco located nearby.



the tower is able to dialogue with the Duomo as well...

Its finitures are very elegant and high quality, considering it was built in the 50's.
Please notice the elegant layout of the windows, and the intentional "random" effect.

Among all the highrises in the world, can anyone really think this is the ugliest building ever built? For real? A building thought and designed to fit the surroundings. Has anyone seen it live?


And besides, Tower Velasca is 99m tall. Can it be considered a skyscarper?
