Funny to see btw. how some here are pretty vocal, yet too dumb to understand what "personal opinion" means.

Whatever it is, it certainly isn't beautiful.

Riverside Towers -- Minneapolis, USA
Grand Lisboa -- Macau
Times Tower -- Hong Kong

Can I nominate the Boston City Hall too? It's not a skyscraper, but it's certainly ugly!

It makes me depressed that Torre Agbar and 30 St Mary's Axe are all being nominated, they're some of my favorite buildings, both of which fit perfectly with their cities (e.g. Torre Agbar reflects the surrounding mountains and the mosaics of Gaudi's architecture, which have become a large part of Barcelona's street scene).

Just becuase they're slighly phalic in shape doesn't make them ugly. And for those saying that the Gerkin ruined London's skyline, don't worry, it will soon be masked by other skyscrapers, including the even less good looking 20 Fenchurch Street, so you wont have to look at it for much longer. Also, the fact that it came second in the Eurocup says that the majority of people don't find it ugly at all.

Rant over

This is just your personal opinion, not a rant, and you are fully eligible to voice it. Some people, however, do not understand anything outside their mindset, ie. Chrysler/ESB/Gherkin are somehow revered by those people and any statement bashing these buildings is met with aggression. I suggest some of you here stop shoving those up our asses and accept the fact that beauty is in the eye of beholder.

And it isn't to do with phallic reasons like some people state, all scrapers are phallic to one degree or another, and you ony have to look at 40 St Mary Axe in London to see how a similar shape can look so outstanding, when the proportions of the building are done correctly, when there is a proper architect involved, when the cladding is classy and and the lighting scheme is suble and refined.

Tore Agbar is none of that, the shape is just....well it's a ***** lets face it, the proportions are all wrong, the cladding looks nasty and the lighting scheme....dear god, tacky doesn't even begin to describe it, it's like they thought "hey this knda looks like an electric *****, why don't we make it look like one of those illuminated glowing dildos you'd expect to see in some cheap sex toy shop?"
Then you definetely don't have a taste.
