It's very hard to build an ugly bridge, and that is beyond ugly. How would the design be approved??

Oh God I don't know if I should cry after all these pictures or laugh.
Except for the historic references everything shown here came straight from hell!
Always a joy to see the "context" and "it's a matter of taste" comments. Really people when did the look of a recipe become more important than the taste of food?
Clear your mind and you'll see death written all over these structures.
(ok, the Spire has some "life" in it's shape but it's just a big damn spire nothing more)

What about THIS building u/c in Benidorm? I kinda like it, but many people think it's ugly.

Great example of taking a perfectly normal building and making it ugly by putting silly green and brown hats on it.

Fugly Food

.That brutalist thing is a cold eyesore, the town of Benidorm is just plane lacking and now with the V for vomit mess, desecrates the natural setting. And I must say Henri Germain you made me laugh, you are correct one hell of a mediocre plate of shit. They will not stand the test of time..:

Yeah, but as it is, it is a hideous eyesore. Brutalist buildings need to be maintained properly to be beautiful.
