Did the Donald pay that guy to start this thread off with the Spire. It's freakin' corporate espionage people! But seriously, "Chicago Spire...America's ugliest skyscraper." What a douche. Like Homer Simpson says, "Go back to Massachusetts pinko!" Speaking of MA, the real reason I'm posting is defend the Prudential in Boston. I'm always shocked to see it in 'worst ten' type lists. And whenever its shown, the picture is usually bad. The Buidling is way better than any thing else from '64, I'd rate it top ten from that dismal decade.

Hey sorry if I interupted my 'useless life' by taking offense to your Spire bashing. It's not like this is the first bad-looking buidling forum here or on SSP. (very enjoyable one over there btw) but this is the only one that starts out by stating that the next US tallest is also the country's ugliest. And I don't think I'm being that out of line...Try going to the Emirates forum as a westerner and start a thread called "Burj Dubai sucks." Picture the shit storm. I don't mix it up with forumers...I don't even post that much.

Hey guys don't ban me I'm done with this nonsense.

Associated Bank building (formerly known as Savings Center Tower) in Downtown Peoria, IL (USA). It won't qualify as a " Skyscraper ". Nevertheless, It's a (20-story) 1960's project that is primarily office/parking. It's, ONLY, redeeming quality is that It balances My, hometown's, skyline!

^ Are you trying to create some contemporary art with that fruity typing style?


By the by, I think we should also include some lower buildings, because there are
the real horror buildings to find

No. It's just... Weird


By the by, I think the Ryugyong is still unbeaten, especially 'cause of its unmatchable surroundings!
