Actually this was built in 1955, so you cannot say this did not copy the Abby... cause this building is much more older than the Abby

Okay Kanto, all you do is not just stating your own opinion, but just trolling

I like the Pyramid building. Never saw it in real but it's iconic and earthquake-safe as well.

So much for freedom of opinion, right?

But back on topic, I can't understand why people hate these twin Chryslers but love the original Chrysler since they are nearly identical. I'd even say those twin Chryslers look considerably better than the original Chrysler though they are still ugly

It's not the shape or silhouette what makes the buildings ugly but rather the abscence of architectural details proper of the Art-Deco style.

This is exactly what I thought when I saw them. I'm not exactly a fan of the Chrysler building, but these two just scream "fake copy".

You should pay a visit to some of those E European seaports, youd be surprised...

I visited Talinn and I loved it there

Btw, now I'll do something many people might have trouble believing, I'll declare a box being ugly and this box is the Sino Steel Tower in Tianjin. What is ugly about this building is it's cladding, which is so hideous that even I think the building is ugly despite being a box
