^ Indeed, as a solitary building this could be cool (nice night illumination) - but at this location, it virtually is the sea cucumber of Graz.
And it's inside UNESCO world heritage protected area! Once again shows what a joke this "protective" seal is.


Btw. People, please stop quoting the same images over and over again!
Scroll through this page, it's ridiculous! Either turn it into links or remove it all. The quotes are enough for a reference.

Well spotted! The interior is not very pleasant, too:

Actually it's amongst the coolest brutalist buildings ever built.

I hate brutalism. But Aachen's hospital is geil, ja.

I hate refinery type buildings (Sorry Richard Rogers)

I'm still so outraged by that monstrosity in Graz. That might be the only building in the world that I want demolished for being ugly. It looks like a decomposing human organ of some sort, plopped in a beautiful old village. There is no building in the world standing today that is uglier than that thing, IMO.

Ugly old building in NYC. It was disproportional to begin with, and looked quite bad before its demolition. Its details were a bit half-assed, too.



Also, the building behind it is quite ugly too.

The Graz thing is actually not so horrible when you see it in real. On the pictures it is, yes indeed.

There is no thread for ugly lowrises so they might as well go here. Maybe the thread should be renamed 'ugly buildings'.
