I agree that Kaden is the winner.

But whoa, Carlton Centre? Is this the missing twin of Minneapolis' Multifoods tower?

Isn't this one of the hotels in Malaysia's Genting Highlands. I think I stayed there before. It's quite nice inside.

Yup, that Kaden heap is defintely UGGG-LLY, a real assault on the eyes...

First, the parts don't blend together at all.

The colors aren't well-chosen, especially that salmon-pink or whatever it is, which reminds of the salmon out (I kid you not!) that I had to use on the job, lo these many years ago, along with white-out, blue-out, yellow-out, etc., on forms that came in eight colors....

The off-white sections remind me of plastic packaging, those tiny windows simply look ridiculous, and that scaffolding running up one side looks like the contractor simply walked in a snit and never bothered to come back and finish up...maybe the money ran out?

In short, another masterpiece straight from the - drum roll, please! - WHAT**IN**THE**WORLD**IS**THAT**THING!!?? school of architecture...

Wonder if any of the folks who work there really would rather NOT be seen entering the place?...

And that hotel in Malaysia looks like an explosion at a paint factory...

Poor ol' McGraw HIll - you can sure tell it hasn't been rennovated...A shame, too, because it wouldn't look half bad if it were...

I like the Malaysian hotel building for the same reason many of you don't like it.....it's very colorful. I suppose the builder and owners of the hotel liked it also.

Yup. Its horrific if this is a residential tower. Fortunately the bldg. is a theme hotel. The reason they painted such tht way is to present a rainbow above the clouds as you see in the pic below. This is the highest casino + entertainment park complex you can found on earth, above 2000m from the sea level, and that single hotel contains 3300 rooms alone.

Yep, this one looks like a high-rise cemetary from the 60's.

Guys tower, London. It's an NHS hospital so no chance of it being re-built or re-clad anytime soon.

Thanks, James Foong - that hotel fits in really well with its context, which I couldn't see in that first picture. Those colors are bright and cherrful, which I appreciate; seeing them all together just REALLY startled me at first...
