Oh Lord, when I looked at it first, it looked as if the windows were actually holes in the construction, and all that was to it were the four pillars and a clock

Here's one in Ghent Belgium that strikes me as quite unattractive:

Looks like some classic Moderne potential under all that crap on the roof.

No. The only reason it's even on here is probably becuase some 12 year old online thought it looked like a dick from that one angle and posted it online where the media caught attention and started putting that image in people's minds. It's meant to look like this:



Not ugly

Curitiba and Belgrade will be a battle to the end of time. The ugliest two I've ever seen. Both could have swept the Ugly Cup if they were contenders.

I actually think the skyscraper in Belgrade is pretty cool. After a renovation I think it'll look pretty good

Mismatching windows, satellite dishes/antennas, and tacky advertisements ruin any building. Renovations would clean all those up, so I agree.

Same. I find it a good example of brutalism

Not a skyscraper, but it sure is ugly.

Woodhull Hospital. I live a couple of blocks away from it.



Notice the twins to the far left.

The Angolan Civil War from 1975-2002 caused it's fair share of ugly skyscrapers to appear (mind you, they weren't the most attractive things in the first place)

Despite the war being over more than 11 years now, some ugly buildings still stand, and the government doesn't seem to have the will to renovate them or tear them down...

The Fiat Building in Luanda is a good example of this

Sometimes I wonder what such buildings would look like if their windows were replaced with clean, matching ones and all the grime was removed. Actually, I think they would look bearable.

The pink brick is horrible, but the rest is kinda cool. Industrial looking.
