Maybe it's not that ugly, but is very funny! China’s Meitan County is known as the “hometown of Chinese green tea”, and the reputation of Meitan green tea has surpassed national borders, so there was really no better place to build a museum of tea culture.

With a maximum diameter of 24 meters, and a capacity of 28,360.23 cubic meters, the Meitan tea museum is by far the world’s largest teapot.

Here's an absolute eyesore, the reclad Century House, London. Mismatching cladding, tiny windows, cheap materials, kitsch decoration.



The sad thing is that it used to be a rather fine International Style building. Now they've turned it into a hideous postmodern frankenstein straight out of 90s Shenyang.

Those Paris highrises look like grain towers converted to living spaces.

No way does it fall in the UGLY category. It is whimsical.

Hard to believe this building is in Canada. And from 2009.

True, despite the falls this must be one of the ugliest places in Canada, with the ugliest skyscrapers in the country.
