I actually like the Lisboa - problem is, it doesn't fit in Macau (or anywhere else...except Dubai)

It probably doesn't even fit there and that says enough. Unless they make a pineapple-shaped island for it, I guess.

For a long time I did not get the Bank of China. Then I became a huge fan of it.

Lol, I actually like that one, Pimpmaster. Wouldn't want to live there though. Are there any pictures of the interior of that building?

Not a real skyscraper, but ugly enough for a nomination...

Hmm, the Novotel in Rotterdam is pretty nice actually. It is white like this one but has a better facade and cladding. I think the aspect that makes the Warszaw one so ugly is the size and arrangement of the windows.

@Benonie: What's up with that Hama one? Is it still under construction or did they just run out of money halfway through the project?
