... If that buidings are ugly for you... you'll die when you see this "thing"...

It's (incredibly) the national library of Argentina, in Buenos Aires...

There are lots of nice buildings in Buenos Aires!! It MUST be destroyed!

It doesn't look so bad at all, but the antenna on top is a true eyesore.

those from panama are very ugly the only thing that compliments them is the height, but the design is hideous.

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)
looks like the UN!

I don't understand why people like Dubai's skyscrapers. They look unnatural and fake. Burj Al Arab is one of the worst, simply because it doesn't look like a real building, more like some abstract sculpture.

Also, I kile skyscrapers that are tall and look tall, the Burj Al Arab doesn't look tall... You cannot tell its size from photos...

I too dislike many of dubai skyscrapers like this one and those that surrounds it. Although I can't understand what ugly you see in Burj Al Arab. But its a matter of personal opinion I guess.

Oh man, I dont hate many buildings, but that one in Dubai realy just makes me cringe. Its got no style. I hate how it comes to a little round top. and I really dislike the spike on top...at least put the spike IN THE MIDDLE of the ugly round top. Damn.
