One of the most hideous newly constructed highrises I've seen so far, located in Slovak town Lučenec.
This twin towers are absolutely tasteless:

Facts
- This 'Smart tower' includes central cooling and heating systems and a grand-lobby with 24 hours security. One of the tower's main attractions is its indoors heated pool, which is located at the 3rd floor, with 9 meters high surrounding glass walls.
- The tower is surrounded with a private 'Sculpture Garden', and a private pier for light-boats is planned to be built in the future.
- Some of Israel's most expensive apartments are located in this tower, with the least expensive apartment (230 square meters of floor space) costing $800,000 and the duplex penthouse (500 square meters of floor space) costing over $3,000,000.
- One of the tower's most striking features is its glass-made pyramidal top.
- The tower's name came from its unique location, neighbouring The Yarkon Park. Ayalon Highway passes nearby as well.
- Most luxury apartments in the tower occupy an entire floor, and have at least 2 parking spaces in the underground parking.
- Ilan Pivko, the tower's architect, was given a free-hand in the design of this tower. The result is one of Israel's most original and distinctive towers.
- The tower features a unique small apartment within the tower base, which is supposed to provide home for the tower guards.

little tower in Padua, Italy.
Too ugly for being built just this year (my opinion)!


The tower should remember the shape of an angel with open wings (this view is the left side) because it is called Hope Tower, and it's going to host children hospital or something like that.. Fail XD

I have a love-hate relationship with the "Hotel Catalonia":

Love the black facade. Hate the copy-pasted for the windows on the white facade.

Why I find this ugly - built in the mid-80s with an outdated design and somehow remains the tallest building in its city, since then (the newer and more beautiful towers are only half this building's height)... And there is also a large "hole" in the roof, where eyesores like telecoms equipment are placed!

This is so out of place in Midtown Manhattan actually... If this is Hong Kong, then it's a different story (the number of tall, narrow skyscrapers there is just crazy!)...

General question: Are all Brutalist-styled buildings ugly?

No, good examples are amoung some of my favorite buildings!

On another note though, this building in Leeds, Sky Plaza (one of the worlds tallest student accomidation blocks) is really ugly to me. It looks like a cheaply refurbished 60s tower block (which would justify its uglyness) but it was actually a new build and externally completed in 2009. The main thing I hate about it is its awful choices of cladding and colour, both of which already look dated and in at least 5 years time will look grimy. There are two phases, the lowrise 'Phase 1' and the highrise 'Phase 2'. Here it is:
