I hate cluttered facades as well, like that one has. Different mish-mashes of designs are very tacky.

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:

Looks like typical social housing project from the 60s or 70s. Kind of reinforces the stereotype that highrise living is only for lower classes.

In all fairness most of the ones above look very modern and extraordinary. I think the Chicago Spire is very impressive actually!
Some countries I have visited over the years have the most old,dirty and old looking depressing buildings that are left abandoned and discoloured by the sun. Just a mess.
These deserve credit, lets be fair!

Any buildings with an arch in them is just awful, the only exceptions are sky bridges.

Just put every building from the High-Rise Prisons in here, haha.

My choice, the UTS building in Sydney.


and this one from Perth.
