It looks more like a purpose built folly to me rather then a serious defect in taste. (Still not what i would've built however.)

Odd, weird, whimsical.
The green trim (specifically the stripes at the bottom) is sort of weird, but I think it's a good building. The blank wall is expected to be covered by a future neighbor with comparable height.

After less than five minutes of researching, I found out the man who owns, or rather owned this property, is anything but a drug dealer. He was a priest, doctor, and businessman. The house is beautiful in my opinion, and will be converted to a museum.

I think it's nice too. There are more worse examples of bad architecture in the world.

It is like silly architecture, i smiled when i saw it. So it makes a positives emotions. The arhitecture is not the highest world standards (those blank walls, widnows on bot-right or those attics) but it is not bad. It is just different than all the others tacky buildings. I think that it suits that place <3

That building is made of mud-brick, much like those other multistory buildings in Yemen, and you can see they all have blank walls at the base. This is for structural support.


I think it's built just right. Also, Yemen is my favourite country in the Middle East, I'd love to visit there.

Now that one is terrible

Why that open space near the bottom?? If going for a classical look it's like rule #1 to avoid spaces like that!

Everything under the upper ledge looks really bad, to many statues, too much gold and too much 'royality' everywhere. They crossed the line with 'golden' ornamentation.

I know that those buildings from Yemen are REALLY old, as well as on the UNESCO list, I read about them somewhere. I dont remember though in what year they built it.

I found a link on wikipedia to those 'skyscrapers':
