Some people here need to double-check the medication they are taking.


Some wonderful architectural pieces have been posted under the name ugly. I guess it is true that people have different tastes and some people's tastes are not fully developed

Are you crazy?

That building is beautiful and iconic.
If it gets built, it will be the first real 21th century building in Europe.

Not that ugly, the cladding is boring but from a distance it's pretty good.

I agree with RaySthlm, all these buildings look hideous. Looks like a slum.

It does look ugly, but it's not as hideous as the Elephant building in my opinion

I kind of like this one because of its cladding! It must create the illusion of color gradient from the distance.

Most skyscrapers in downtown Bogota look just like regular American skyscrapers of the 70s. The ones I would perhaps call ugly are the tall brick-red structures. Something about them is actually mesmerizing, but overall they look like those giant commieblocks in the suburbs of Paris. And the tall one with a single vertical row of windows looks brutal, but I'm sure its main facade is nicer.
As for the airport, it looks creepy indeed. I read it is being extended, so I hope it also gets a radical facelift in the process!

Yup, it was mentioned somewhere in the first pages I think. The guy who posted it even said something like "it was even designed at the local department of architecture. No wonder nobody abroad has ever heard of UTS!"

Raysthlm is seriously bothered by the fact that Colombia is more developed than Thailand..

I checked his profile, it actually says he's only 25% Thai. Anyone knows why he was banned? I got the impression he's at war with a number of users...

He must have had a traumatic experience with Colombia or some Colombian! I see no other reason for hating a particular city so much, even if it's actually as ugly as one claims.
