Also a photoshop. Look on google Earth to see the completed complex. The triangular building is the tallest. Two tall office towers are planned, but they will be clad and look nothing like the small tower that was used in the photoshop.

I like these towers more than any other skyscraper in Poland. They have a very Netherland-ish style to them. I wish we had more of that "absurd" development here, as most of the architecture is really boring and uninspired.

Me too. Without fail, these 'ugly skyscraper' threads are full of buildings that I like. Anything unconventional always seems to draw extreme negativity from some people.

It wouldn't be the first one I'd design, think of or approve. Far too busy.

And well, UGLY is in the eye of the beholder.

In my city, Salisbury, during the modernisation drive of the 1960s a small number of city centre buildings were torn down, and replaced with real shockers

Before


After



I can't even begin to tell you how much I despise this building

Now that's the type of ugly I hate as well.

It's super ugly, but I'd definitely want to go look at it if I were there. In the end I find buildings have value if they engage the viewer. There's also quite a difference between tacky/vulgar and depressing/run down.
