Me either.....I have seen much worse. But didn't I read that this building is structurally flawed, even dangerous and is beyond repair?

I tend to find deconstructivist style skyscrapers the most overrated, but that's just me saying this.

I don't care how ugly the building is anything with the name 'Ministry of Interrogation' deserves an applause.

Here's one I don't think too much of: One new York Plaza (biggest on the left)

image hosted on flickr


Actually this picture doesn't make it look too bad. So no it's not the worst, but it's always been one of my least favorite in Manhattan.

I think it's because of the top level that overhangs the rest of the building, don't think much of the window framing either. Maybe without that roof it could just be another plain modern box.

Well we're all entitled to our own beliefs, but I'm one of those who thinks the Chicago Spire is beautiful.

I agree with everyone who posted these pics (so far) that these buildings are ugly as hell! It's to the point when I'm just laughing through the entire thread; True works of art.

Russia has an entire ministry dedicated to interrogation or is it a joke?

Here's one from Toronto
Manulife Centre



There are at least 1 or 2 more like it in toronto.
