Not a great fan of the Spire personally - strangely enough, I dislike all the prominent (of height 300m+) Chicago buildings, including the ones under construction (Spire, Trump, Waterview). Their art-deco buildings (usually of a lesser height) are fantastic though.

Most of the Shenzhen skyscrapers are vomit inducingly ugly, as is the Taipei-101 (some shots excepted).

You wanna see ugly skyscrapers? Go to Wuhan. My God! Wuhan must be the ugliest city in the world. The buildings are tacky as f*ck and it looks like it has down syndrome. I can't begin to rant on how ugly Wuhan's skyline is. It is as hideous as Martin Van Buren.

This is the one that doesn't do it for me. It may or may not be U/C right now in Saigon HCMC. The developer calls it a lotus blossom. I call it a watering can.

Calatrava's designs look like they're from the 60's "modern" era. All the same color and just plain unattractive.

Calatrava is a genius. Sure, some may love his work, some may simply hate it, but most of his buildings are masterpieces of engineering.

That building looks very fit for Ministry of Interrogation especially in Russia. Call me weird but I don't think this building looks that bad.

Sorry but for the majority of people they would find that Ministry of Interrogation ugly. Also I like Chicago Spire, but of course you can't please everybody.
