Well.. I think the uglyest will be the Herzog and De Meuron's new tower in Paris. It's a CRIME to Paris...

I would like this building only if it would be situated in La Defense. But standing all alone somewhere else in Paris doesn't make any sense for such building!

From Panama City, Panama, these are all from the same architect, this guy is awful and his buildings are in some of the most important locations of the city:

But the winner is...








this building deserves to be demolished just for these columns:

Many people hate it, especially because the window blinds and curtains don`t match, the air conditioners, the facade is begging for some maintenance, and besides it`s not really located in the best place.

Well, but after all, I like it (and compared with the aberrations shown here it`s not bad at all)

The freedom tower looks like the Shanghai world financial centre but inverted and the design repeated a few times. The freedom tower looks very irregular and out of place, nothing elegant about it, besides the height.

I wonder why is he engaged to design these in the first place, and why the developers like it.

^Ryugyong isnt that bad, its just unfinished. It never got its cladding for one (which is a little unfair imo). I always think the 'demonisation'/ ridicule of that building kind of smacks of politicking to me.
