One of my personal (least) favourites, Victoria Centre flats, Nottingham.

Sorry, couldn't work out how to post a pic so I've just shown the link.

That's usually an expression to show how much he's disappointed.

Yeah but I have no idea if he disagrees with me because the building is even worse or a lot better.

I honestly don't know if I like this building. I think it depends on what they do with the 'vertical gardens'. They're going to be public spaces for the residents to use, as they don't have individual balconies.
I actually like it. :X

The thing with the windows would bother me if I lived there though, but from an outside perspective it looks cool.

Worst thing about Grand Lisboa is the egg.

IMO the Grand Lisboa is quite beautiful (but it doesn't fit Macao's skyline), and that university tower in Batumi is not that bad too...

It would have been better without the spire. than the Venetian ( which looks also better ) is taller. and btw, there are much more worse buildings in macau.
