It looks nice until you are there.

It is very depressing seeing a vast open walk space with towers surrounding it and only seeing 5-12 people walking. Not to mention it looks like something out of 1984 (The tallest tower is The Ministry of Truth)

Torre velasca is NOT an ugly skyscraper! It has been built in the '50 and is an historical building! Do you think that in one of your "magnificent" cities in this year could be possible to build a so advanced building under the structural profile?? I think NOT!

Guys, my first post here.

What do they say: Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Altho indeed, some of those are hideous monstrosities.

But what's worse is Astralis having to dupre and re-post tons of photos. Restraint, please.

But just imagine the work done by builders/architects. It is ugly but I like it. It is complicated enough and so ugly so it should be quiet fascinating.

If this does get built, I will give it the award for the most ugliest skyscrapers ever.

Actually I like this building but it's kind of lonely, in the middle of nowhere just like you said...

Like that, they can pass for the "Darkness Before the Dawn", which were buildings similar to that.

This one is not only ugly, but it was built in the way that these federal houses would be spared.
