its "the house of the soviets" in kaliningrad in russia.

"The building was built on the original territory of Königsberg Castle and has been described as the "ugliest building on Russian soil"

"Construction began on the House of Soviets in 1960, but structural problems related to the castle's subterranean levels halted its progress and construction was stopped indefinitely in the 1980s. The building was eventually completed in 2005 and is intended to function as a business centre."

The structure to me is ok. But note that this structure lies at an older district where you have flats on the upper levels and commercial establishments on the the lower. Yes most of these flats are old but definitely not ugly.
