General question: Why do large buildings have to be ugly (or at least considered "Ugly")?

There are very few large buildings I truly consider ugly. But I guess others would just be annoyed by their hulking presence..? Not sure.

Not all large buildings have to be ugly. Some of them are nice, some are ugly...

That's what everybody said about every tall building ever constructed in NYC.

^ Any source/evidence for that? That's rather hard to believe.


Actually, a building like 432 Park Ave aesthetically ruins the Midtown skyline.
Height isn't much of a problem, when accompanied by proper architecture.

Mirante do Vale, São Paulo.

The tallest skyscraper in Brazil. One of the ugliest, also.
