An example in Argentina's second city... the Angela Tower (since 1983 tallest building of the city, recently dethroned by Capitalinas)

In the future perhaps there will be another one next to it. Check the Vancouverish top!

Building like this need alot of works to get designed but the design doesnt fit the town..

I just found a building that is so hideous that only the Slaughterhotel is uglier. It's the Sheikh Zhayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi



It looks like a grey alien

+1! Allthough the Hotel Hesperia Tower is ugly anyway. Only the fire stair is fine.

I hope you know that the thing you refer to as an alien is part of mosque architecture. Please don't be ignorant.

At the end of the day tastes vary and architecture is no exception for that.

I, for instance, think the Chrysler building vastly overrated and wouldn't mind it being demolished. Others will love it.

On the other hand, I also like a building many people hate, Tour Montparnasse.

So it all boils down to individual preferences.
