The green transformers-look-a-like building in Kaoshiung is another vomit inducing structure..

I have to admit I am getting sick of twisty and "novelty" shaped buildings. Any building shaped like a sex toy is starting to get on my nerves- they are just so 2005. The Ministry of Interrogation so far is one of the contenders for the prize, but that hotel in North Korea nearly blinded me. The winner, hands down, has to be that monstrously ugly Elephant Building. Where the heck is the poor city that got stuck with that one?

Everybody who consider's the Spire as the ugliest building on earth does have taste for real.

I like the ARIANE building, just wish they'd do something about the spacing of their logotype. And I love the Mirador in Madrid - Toronto needs a few in different colourways.

Thats the EXACT thoughts people had when the Transamerica pyrimid was Under construction! People thought it was ugly as hell and they thought it would be embaressing to add to their skyline! But look at it now!
