That's post #3454

It's a private home (arch Antti Lovag), owned by a fashion designer (Pierre Cardin). I can hardly see it from the road, first time i get a real look at it. Yes not pretty alright, but here are some crazy facts, which somehow makes me wish it was my abode:

Size: 1,200sqm or roughly 13,000 sq ft
Name: Palais des bulles (translated: bubbles' palace)
Built between 1975 and 1989
Has 1,000 "eyes" (portholes)
Has 10 suites
Has an open-air amphitheatre that can sit 500 ppl
...


For those who can read french

Looks like some classic Moderne potential under all that crap on the roof.
It doesn't look half as bad as in your picture
It's the Library tower of the University of Ghent. The tower holds 3 million books in it's archives. It was built in 1936. It deserves some respect for holding up 3million books all those years

It badly needs renovation, though I don't think the University has the money for this.

The last one is indeed a nice example of XX century architecture. Check here (university website) for further information
