Belgium - Part I

Here is some crap from Belgium . Since building rules on aesthetics in Belgium are pretty open people can pretty much build as they want the way they like it as long as it conformes to all other building regulations offcourse.

It leads to a whole differend level of mismatching with surroundings and nearby architecture as people build new and renovate older housing

The more photos I see of Addis Ababa, the more I think Ethiopia is secretly a Balkan country:











The ugliest buildings in Addis look surprising like the ugliest buildings in Sofia and Skopje.
