looks like something an artist would admire rather than a designer or architect.

Just checked the thread (most of it) for the first time.
Obviously I am quite tolerant about architecture styles - I don't consider half of the shown structures to be ugly.

But there is one (M2 in Tokyo) that really made me feel sick.
Here is a bigger version (view at own risk!):

I just don't get that building. Every single element is just wrong. Bizarre.

What I spacially hate about this building: the pillars where it stands on...

So never combine humour with architecture. You get something childish.
Sorry but I think that Ghery's building is great because it's a kind of research how you can make deconstructive designs. Architecture is a serious thing but I think that there is a place for buildings which are funny and serious (from a point of architecture) in the same time.

That is ofcourse my opinion...

Apart from individual ugly skyscrapers, there's also this tendency to put a whole bunch of them together:
