I never really liked suburban sprawl, so that's why I posted those.

Suburban sprawl is probably the best example of the dark side of architecture.

This thread should have a health-warning attached, or some protective exorcism in the first post. Any way, something tells me that central and eastern Europe stands a good chance of dominating the discussion

Yeah, post-soviet countries seems to have much bigger impact on that kind of 'architecture'. But i will 'like' to see more houses from other continents as well
Anyone- any examples?

Although my heart is bleeding, I think I can add something from my area.

1990s was a tough time for architecture in Warsaw. Many good souls lost their senses in that period of doom and despair - the period which made the Biblical Plagues look like a childish prank. Those of us who survived still try to forget...

The 90s were horrible times for East Europe in almost everything, architecture is no exception.
