While this may be the most hilariously harsh criticism of a design i have ever read, part of me agrees whole-heartedly with your assesment.

My vote goes to the Ryong Hotel in Pyongyang, or to that elephant building. However, that hotel in New York just above does make me a little nauseous.

Remember people, that this is a subjective topic. People have different opinions. While I think the Chicago Spire is far too tall for its design, it's certainly going to be an interesting building. Constantly stating "no.. it's ugly... it's the ugliest thing ever!" doesn't really advance a discussion. Back your opinion up with some reasons, or at least be willing to accept that others have a very different opinion to yours.

I'm probably gonna get some criticism from this, but I don't really care for the designs of the Chicago Spire. It looks alright, but it just looks weird to me. It looks like somebody just drilled it up into the sky.

IMO this building is Moscow is pretty interesting, doesn't look like any other Soviet era building, it looks like there are commies put on top of each other.. on the other hand that highrise with the blue tower in the first picture is much worse...
