It looks very unpleasant indeed, more like some industrial Eastern European seaport rather than something you would expect to find in France. I find the tower in the third picture (I'm not quoting it because of its size) particularly ugly.

Le havre could be a good place for Kanto's holiday.

^Actually the cladding looks very good. There's not much wrong with this tower.

Not just the cladding is a faught...The top for itself is a catastrophe... Small windows and too much concrete..

Mais tu dis vraiment n'importe quoi Moustache, la ville du Havre est loin d'être moche ! Y as tu déjà mis les pieds ? J'en doute fort. Tu critiques, mais je doute que tu y es déjà allé (ou une journée à tout caser).
Il y a de tout au Havre, un centre ville plutot bien reconstruit, un quartier "anglais", un quartier populaire digne de New York... Donc ne dis pas que la ville est laide !


But you say really anything Mustache, the city of Havre is far from being uglyHave kept silent already put feet there? I doubt it hardly. You criticize, but I doubt that you already went (or there a day to accommodate everything)..
There is of everything in Havre, a city center plutot well reconstructed, a "English" district, a popular district deserving of New York... Thus do not say that the city is ugly!

That is what i thought myself, until i saw the real thing. The cladding of the glassfacade and the top is very nice. Nice details!

The Woolworth for the past 4 years of my life, since I discovered it and saw it in person, has been my absolute favorite building in the WORLD bar none. To call it ugly is a crime to humanity. Every building aspires to be like the Woolworth, maybe the setback is a little drastic, but I think it is tasteful. You are crazy to call it ugly, it couldn't be further from it. If you want ugly, look at the bland crap they're spewing out in the Middle East and China. I think Jin Mao is a pretty ugly building.

I agree with one thing, Jin Mao really is ugly

Well I'm not in love with modernist architecture, but for truth's sake I have to admit that the church interior in Le Havre is really BEAUTIFUL! Those stained glass are really amazing!

Indeed, these spots of Le Havre you posted are interesting. But the city looks austere overall, at least in the large photo posted by Moustache. Just what you would expect for the city of Christine Lagarde!
