The Tower of Death:


Rijeka, Croatia!

Other towers are in good shape...

They just have to make it curve forward as if its going to tip over. IF only they got rid of the curve, the tower would be beautiful.

These arent the best looking in the world but definitely are above average... and some of them are even in the high class when it comes to modern buildings . So basically, they are far from ugly...

I love all the towers in your quote EXCEPT the one I chose. It just doesn't seem fitting.
