Couldn't agree more,ThatOneGuy!
Personally, I think that Guy's hospital looks marginally better refurbished than it did before, although it is still hideous.

The hospital section is far better after the concrete panels were cleaned and the windows were replaced, but the service tower with the rippled blue cladding is pretty bad.

I actually kinda like the arched windows. It's pretty much just the thing on top I don't like.

Dubai
Burj Khalifa

Al Yaqoub Tower
