now i know i'm going to get a lot of crap for saying it, but this one...



ha ha, only joking -- just my tribute to all the Chicago/NYC posts here.


i've always thought the Harbour Center in Vancouver was an architectural low point in an otherwise beautiful city. looks like half an ugly 70s observation tower wedged into/onto a pretty blah skyscraper. even worse since it's the tallest thing on the skyline.

Is that PS3 building part of marketing campaign or merely Photoshop?

if you think Chicago spire is ugly, I would say the rest of skyscrapers are uglier.

pretty much every building in Dubai is a piece of sh** they are all ugly buildings, that were approved to make a speedy tall skyline, but while making such a fast UGLY skyline they forgot to take any initiative to think about the buildings' designs, i think Dubai has the most pathetic, artificial, UGLY skyline in the world

ok game over guys, Trellick Tower, London

Its so ugly its become iconic (and listed as a protected building).
Once inhabited by crime and poverty its now become prime real estate for yuppies in Notting Hill.
Believe it or not these flats sell for a $1 million - maybe someone needs to tell them it looks like shit:

The wing built in the 70s merging seamlessly with the original:

The chicago spire looks like an erect *****..i hate that building...it ****s up chicago's loop skyline...its so out of place in that 20th century skyline...and then the crazy sh* is that is so close to the waterfront which makes it even more visible!

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)
I think the Empire State Building is great and it should stand there as long as the New York Island stands...It represents the impresive growth of the NYC area in the 20th century and it is pure Art Deco...its simply history.

I love walking Down Herald Sq(6th Ave-Broadway) and seeing its impresive figure in the skyline of midtown manhattan...is simply great! I even prefered this building over the Ex-WTC towers

I remember seeing that in DC - I couldn't believe such a thing got approved. not the ugliest building here, but one of the weirdest sights in DC.
