Actually I find this rather interesting. BTW these Dubai buildings are top notch, especially Burj al Arab.

In my town, Thank-god Towers are being imposed around it, this was taken years ago, Looks like a tampon dispenser.

Singapore's Pearlbank Apartments, the verticle Unite'd Habitation. It was recently repainted in peach colour.


150 Cecil Street, with its weird facade.

I don't mind the Sugar Shaker, but I admit it's a very strange design.

dunno if that grain storage silo can be called a "skyscarper", but it definately is the worst structure in Frankfurt-am-Main!

The worse midrise/highrise buildings I've seen are in the Tokyo Institute of Technology Suzukakedai campus. Not just for the shape, but for the texture as well.

It's a concentration camp.. No.. It's the Tokyo Institute of Technology. And they wonder why this campus has the highest suicide rate in Japan. Pictures of Suzukakedai, Yokohama Neighborhoods, 2007.
