Some ugly buildings in Hengelo, a small town (apr. 80.000 inhabitants) in the east of The Netherlands.

The "Hengelose Es" area:

Office building "de Bolder" in the city centre, imo pretty

I am going to take so much crap from this but here goes, I'm ready...


Sorry guys, it just doesn't do it for me. It's nearly 80 years old and it's still the tallest building in the most powerful city in the most powerful country in the world. The ESB is just so bland and depressing and to tell you the truth, nothing really stands out to me, it just looks like a big boring gray statue. It most definitely isn't the ugliest building, but it's certainly ugly(in my eyes)

well im gonna say your crazy it may not be as nice as the nearby Chrysler Building but its still one of the nicest buildings around and it looks alot better close up but hey its just your opion


anyway im pprobley gonna upset alot of people by saying this building is ugly but here i go the sears tower has to be one of the worst buildings built in the 70's it's just so blah and the only thing that stands out about it is its hight i know most buildings built in the 70's were like this but idk its not as amazing as the world trade center in was or the transamerica pyrmid.
but its not the uglyst in the world also chicago has soooooo much more to offer in great buildings then this espcially when the spire is built i hated it at frist but im starting to like it
