It's not an ugly tower - it just doesn't fit in with its surroundings.

Concerning The Shard picture

If you are referring to the 70s crap around it -then yes,

if you mean the London Bridge Tower itself, I'm sorry I couldn't disagree more.

I understand that there were plans to demolish the AfE-turm years ago for a skyscraper that is 460 feet high that is part of a new commercial and residential zone. It is located on the campus of Goethe University Frankfurt, though it should currently move away to the north of Frankfurt.

What an abomination! This is truly one of the most horriffic things ive ever seen. Its a hideous composition in shape and design, the architectural style is the worst kind of ignorant cheap pastiche and its so greedilly massive. It should be illegal to design like this
