I wouldn't exactly call it ugly, I just hate this style of buildings. The United States has loads of them and they freak me out!

I have to admit I am getting sick of twisty and "novelty" shaped buildings. Any building shaped like a sex toy is starting to get on my nerves- they are just so 2005. The Ministry of Interrogation so far is one of the contenders for the prize, but that hotel in North Korea nearly blinded me. The winner, hands down, has to be that monstrously ugly Elephant Building. Where the heck is the poor city that got stuck with that one?

By the way, I hate towers like the one in the third picture. I just can't stand this 1930-40 aura they exude!



These are just normal balconies by Southern European standards. We have much larger and better looking balconies here.



I like them too, but they're not enough to balance an otherwise ugly design.
Yeah, indeed

That's indeed a "great" example of an ugly building.

@moustache:

Most projects for Toronto that you posted are not that ugly IMO, the tall condominiums even look very nice, modern and airy. The ones I would consider unattractive or ugly are these:



I also find this one to be a little too messy:



but this is balanced to a certain extent by its novel design and airiness.

Overall, I think all these buildings are better looking that many of those you find in downtown Toronto today.
