I totally agree with you. It's insane call it ugly!

Broadcast and observation towers are mostly ugly but one which stands out as being utterly hideous is the Seattle Space Needle

Actually I had never seen it up close, and I think it has quite an interesting design, especially those crawling babies! However, when seen from a distance, looming above the city, it just looks wrong on so many levels.

I personally find the Space Needle's design very refreshing for something built in the 1960s. Here are however some TV towers that I would consider ugly:

Sofia - Borisova Gradina


Sofia - Kopitoto


Bratislava


Zagreb

the Sofia and Bratislava towers in my opinion are amongst the most good looking TV towers in the world, though they still are ugly, it's just that others are even uglier, LOL

I thought you might like the one in Sofia because of its straight angles Which ones do you find the ugliest, apart from the Space Needle?

It would be a shame. I think the thread in itself is very interesting to follow, and a great insight on different architectural extremes around the world, even though some city bashing inevitably occurs from time to time (but doesn't it happen on most threads sooner or later?)

I hate round shapes. In some buildings like the Trump Chicago Tower or the Houston Wells Fargo Plaza they are kinda bearable but in most cases, like the vast majority of broadcast towers they are hideous. I can't name them all in 1 post cause there are so many of them so I'm gonna continuously name them 1 by 1 in this thread.

The Europa Turm in Frankfurt is the second ugliest observation/broadcast tower, second only to the Space Needle. It is a hideous building
