Not even similar...

But yes, it's a bland ugly rectangle.

And the Tour Bretagne in Nantes is quite hideous too...

The business park tower in my hometown...

This looks surprisingly modern for something designed in the 1970s. In fact it shares a lot of similarities with most of the condominiums built today. I'm not particularly fond of this kind of painted walls, but I would definitely not call this building ugly.

I thought you liked straight angles Kanto? Because apart from the thing on the top, you can't find straighter angles than this!

But I also said how much I hate round shapes and the top, which draws the most attention, is round. Fact is, I hate straight buildings with round tops far more than round buildings

I love that one. It looks a bit like an ancient temple.

This building, my friend, is for you not ugly, but for me, it's hideous.
So you can't adjudicate in this way.
