There are far worse concrete disasters, every city has them, even yours which has quite a few of them but a lot of the buildings are grand too, not discounting Shanghai which is a vast metropolis with hundreds of years of history itself. Yeah that TV tower is tacky, but I can't really fault some of the quality of some of the buildings there.

My city is famous for post war disasters springing up, we're regenerating a lot of these past mistakes only to replace them with with some mediocre building that will be knocked down a few years later.

All opinions are subjective. I also do not like Torres Puerta Europa.
Let's say 50% of people like and 50% people do not like them.

As you said, those towers generate very different feelings in the people.
They're not buildings almost unanimously considered nice, like could be Torre Picasso.

Tour Montparnasse adds a bit of variety to an otherwise homogeneous cityscape. Its dramatic presence is what makes it so stunning.

i don't like lonely towers sadly dominating skyline like the montparnasse, even if the shape isn't that bad. i don't find coherent with the city and with its position if you want my opinion, and the context, in architecture, is all to me

Wrong thread, Kanto.
This bulding might be ugly, but it's no skyscraper.
So stop spaming things which aren't right here.

People post here buildings that are below 100 meters all the time. For example he most popular buildings in this thread, commie buildings, are nearly all below 100 meters and therefore are not skyscrapers. If the entire thread will agree that only buildings above 100 meters will be posted I'll obey it without any problems but if everybody else posts lowrises then why ahould I not, LOL

I like the last one, it's very unconventional in terms of shape, color and window arrangement! Where is it planned to be built?

Isn't it the Royal Ontario Museum in Ontario, Canada? I'm not a fan of Libeskinds buildings and don't like this one either. They all looks like they are trying too hard to be different.

You are right. Maybe some higher quality cladding would save the building but I doubt that.
