I believe that there is enough material on these photos...

P.S.

Some of the buildings are nice (on the second and on the last photo), but most of them are... just awful.

Good lord! Those high-rises, even the last one, are atrocious.

I know that with that "dark side" the OP didn't mean exactly this, but I'm not sure where to post what someone called quite appropriately the... Darth Vader house

(seriously I'd like to know what and where this building is)

Waaayy to big a picture. Need to scale down. Though, I have to say I don't think it is terrible. Just a little...dark.

it's not terrible at all. It was just a little joke with that "Dark side" in the title that made me think of Star wars.

'Temple of All Religions' in Kazan and Izmailovo Kremlin in Moscow don't belong here, esp. when you have a better picture of them

Lots of good stuff, had a great laugh browsing the last few pages, thanks to all those who posted.

There is too much stuff in Romania to share one example after another, it's better if I point in the direction of the best resource I know: https://cashidelucs.wordpress.com/page/

BTW, the architecture of gypsy palaces in Romania is so mental on one hand and so elaborate on the other that it's actually interesting to view and study.

All those Romanians thinking that because there is no communism, they are "rich," and can therefore build whatever tacky "mansions" they want.. or maybe a 3-star faux-Swiss lodge for Dracula tourists.

Excalibur hotel casino, Las Vegas, USA

My eyes... That's prolly the ugliest specimen here awhile. The Chinese one above is a bit funny and bizarre, this one is pure atrocity.

And why would you design a building like that especially for children ? I mean, not that this would excuse anything, its still a tacky accumulation of everything russians ever did in architecture.

Same reason they build the Disney World (they didn't base it on a real French or Spanish castle, but a German one (as if the German castles were not kitschy enough as it is )).

Pareshnath Jain Temple - Calcutta, India

The building itself is not that bad, but the choice of the colors is... almost unreal
