I was only referring to the cylindrical part of those towers.

Here's a link to a Telegraph listing & fotos of what it considers the 21 ugliest bldgs in the world:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/property/...?frame=2159757

I actually like the round bldg in Abu Dhabi. But the bloated udder bldg in Graz, Austria, isn't on there!

This nightmare in Kosovo, their national Library, is #3. I can only guess that the architect's family or in-laws got the contract for those geodesic cupola-domes.

LOL, our inverted pyramid radio building is there too. I completely agree with the article, it really is ugly as hell

I think it's a beautiful building, kind of "Buck Rogers" style tower. Better than another shoe box from the 60's and 70's with the AC unit on its roof.

That one is pretty bad. I'd rather have a box with good cladding than that thing.

Nice thred, I think is time for me to share some of the sky crappers I've found. I don't know if they've been posted already. : It's the Beijing's new Phoenix International Media Centre. Which reminds me a bit of this: -

I always thought the inverted pyramid was kinda cool, but if only it didn't have the top mechanical part.

But still, I don't know anything that can beat the thing in Graz!

Actually, I like that. It reminds me more of one of those bean-bag cushions.

@ThatOneGuy, yes the Graz udder takes the cake. I don't how they were able to get 'aye' votes for that and a permit to build, no less.

I'm sure we all know it. Absolutely hideous, and putting it slap bang in the middle of nowhere doesn't help the case.
