The Chrysler building looks awful! Come on, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Many of the towers mentioned here look great.

You must be talking about The Torre Latino Americana. I hate that one! It's like a box type imitation of The Empire State Building with a mast

The Torre Mayor serves better for Mexico City's skyline.

I never did like Metrotech Ctr, b/c it felt out of scale with the rest of downtown Brooklyn, plus us taxpayers were the ones paying for it, not Ratner.

I've always been annoyed by the ESB and Conde Nast.
Not to mention that Verizon building by the Brooklyn Bridge.

Many people disagree with me but I really don't like the currently under construction Brisbane Square in Brisbane. I think it's architects trying to do something different (good) but making it look like kids blocks (bad)

The thread for the building is at http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...4&page=1&pp=25

IBX Tower aka G.Fred DiBona Jr. Building

Philadelphia, PA 625 feet

OK first off, what is with the new name, megalomania at its best

This one just is too many shapes in one...a square with a triangle on the top with a cross inside a circle...

I hate the Messe Turm, it is like putting a piece of Atlanta in the middle of the wonderful city of Frankfurt.

Don't hate BCE place!

Alot of people have described alot of buildings i've drawn or modeled as being very "Miesian" and I have to say, he is one of my biggest influences, though. His buildings are AMAZING.

As for skyscrapers that make me angry..


Marina City in Chicago.

What the **** is it trying to be?
