Ugliest building proposals

What in your opinion is the ugliest building that is/was proposed.
For me, I'd say the palace of soviets.

Thank goodness it was never built

So I like the building. Only one other statue would have on top of it.

Any of the old WTC proposals, Changsha sky city, and the Trump Hotel in Dubai.

The towers aren't ugly, but completely out of place with awful bases. Oh yeah, and there's that damn ring...

Don't you think above Grand Central would be the perfect place for a teleporter ?

I have absolutely no clue how serious this proposal was, all I know is that you can find these concept renderings. It's good enough for me to be considered a proposal, but if someone could verify this proposal it would be the better. Nonetheless, it remains ugly as hell.

That London proposal looks to be right up their alley. They seem to like stuff like that.

Actually the palace of Soviets is not that bad. I mean, without the statue on the top (is that Lenin?)
