Ouch! Totally out of scale! It's almost fun! I can't dig all these constructions without sense of proportions and kinda exposing with pride their mere structures without a single decoration or "embellishment"...what they were thinking?

The Marina Bay Sands Restort doesn't look ugly... I dunno why some people have to say it's ugly?

And Kanto, you probably have the worst opinion ever. Bad taste, saying every building is ugly, except for boxes. Your a very strange person...

I ask myself the same question when people say big ben, met life tower or eiffel tower are ugly.

Otherwise, i think The Marina Bay Sands Restort dosent look good because :
the global shape, out of propotion, the comunism bloc's cladding, no details, too much massiv, the roof. It seems like a cheap building which has been built in 70"s in Benidorm ...

Why is somebody who loves boxes and hates old architecture (except for ancient architecture) considered weird and being even by some (moustache) considered provocative while nobody sees anything wrong on somebody loving old architecture and hating boxes. It is simply my taste that I love right angles. I always loved them, my entire life I love straight lines and right angles

Gooosh I'm all for historical architecture but Mike you've choosen my favorite architecture from gothic period! Loving this harmonical and proportionate brabantine gothic city hall...its richness and sculptural intricacy is almost enjoyable as the baroque to me!

And yes, I see arkward ugliness in some modern building because I just can't read them. What is the order? What is the overall plan? Why there are 60 floors and not -say- 56? Why there are 12 windows in a floor and not 15? It is just too arbitrarial, lacking of a deeper structure. They seems to just say: "hey, let's do something strange now!". It's a toy, it is a game, it is a play, it is structural engineering, it it structural experimentation, but it is by no means art, it is by no means a research to achieve beauty, that is to hidden order, plans or harmony above the plain surface of physical matters, of marbles, of colours. To hidden an utopical dream beneath reality, beneath things: That's what beauty it is to me

It's the Leuven City Hall in Leuven, Belgium, one of the best (if not the best) example of civil gothic architecture. It's a Gem, really!

In architecture I love right angles and simplicity. Old architecture is the exact opposite of that. Old architecture is a mix of countless shapes and angles which I hate though one thing that I hate even more are the "decorations" on the buildings which I call spikes. To me the old buildings look like a mace with all the spikes
