This beauty in Toronto.





Not sure if it's an off-center roof or if the three main windows are off-center.

Actually pretty much anything with EIFS, vinyl or alucobond siding, or insulbrick can be added here. None of those materials age well.

Behold, the ugliest house in history.
24 Brentwood Dr, Avon, CT
http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/24...59011376_zpid/


































It seriously looks like a serial killer's lair. Half the "decorations" look like hanging human skin and the "paint" looks like smeared blood, vomit and fecal matter.

The interior is awful, but the exterior could pass.

I think this thread should have more of Skopje, Astana, Dresden, and unfortunately, even New York (with some of the precast cladded buildings). Most of the buildings, or actually houses presented in this thread, look just poor, but some of the buildings constructed in the cities I mentioned have buildings that have huge price tags, but still look tasteless, without too much respect to their surroundings and even the styles they aspire to be part of. For me that's more fit-able to this thread.

Well, at least I've made efforts some examples from Skopje to find their place on this thread. You're all welcome to contribute.
