It's much more aesthetically pleasing and balanced than London's City Hall:

The first one is constantly rated as one of the worst buildings in the world.

No, they're not. They're 2 variants of the same idea, reshaping a basic globular shape into something askew. The Beijing one just came out 200% better than London's.

Where is this?

I think it's more "stupid-looking" than ugly. If anything, it's whimsical-dumb. What an absolute waste of space.

It's the College of art and Design in Toronto. I've passed by it a few times when I was younger, it's pretty tacky, but at least it's appropriate for what it's used for...

First one is just ugly, looks like designed by a little child who was playing with LEGO. My goodness it's really horrible crap if I thinked 'bout it.
Second one was designed by a crazy Asian robot fan who got nothing nice to do in his pastime
