As for my most-hated building, I would go with the MetLife building from NY.
With that kind of shape, it should have no more than 8 levels.
It's an insult to the skyline, almost as if someone looked at the Chrysler building and aimed for the exact opposite.

lovely!

I think my most hated building is Guy's hospital. Not only is it ugly (as many point out), its also basically impossible for it to ever look anything but ugly due to it being a financially squeezed, government run hospital. This then rules out a full demo or high quality reclad as these would be higly impractical.

Is that the building close to the Shard? The ugliness of that building is even more emphasized by the presence of the Shard.

In my city, I would think of these 2 sub par designs on a top location:


(Blaak 8 and Wijnhaeve)

This monstrosity (Neudeflat) in the historical centre of Utrecht is also a great contender.
Totally misplaced, cheap materials, poor maintained; really the kind of buildings dat damage the image of highrises.

What are you smoking mate? Take BHP away and Perth loses a HUGE chunk of skyline. You would be hard pressed to find too many locals that would agree with you.

Maybe that's because construction stopped for a decade and is in the most secretive country on Earth.

I really really hate Lloyds bldng in London. It seems misplaced. Kind of ruins the skyline for me, even though it isnt that tall

It looks like a chemical weapons factory. All that's missing is some rusty Soviet era chimney.

Yep and yep. I agree, its uglyness wouldn't be in the spotlight as much as it is without the Shard being right next to it

I agree with him - I guess I don't know what I'm talking about either. Thanks to these ugly green pieces of shit, glass seems to have a bad name around Toronto.
