Thanks for linking this excellent article.
Here's a pic I took of the building back in April.



It was indeed looking quite decrepit and in urgent need of a serious refurbishment.

That building is actually an apartment building, not a hotel and there are plans for a new building to be built on the site. All the capsules in the building are replaceable, but I don't think that a building similar to this one in Tokyo will ever be constructed.

^ It's something called taste. Maybe you like it but others find it ugly.

Sad it's going to get demolished. I kinda like it, reminds me of the Lloyds building in London even though they're not similar in shape. I wish someone restored the building...

The Sillon de Bretagne apartment building in Paris, France may possibly be considered ugly. There should be a plan to renovate the entire building by giving it a new facade and making in a 'green' building.

The Sony Building, what else could be that ugly (rhetorically because there's nothing)?

The first one is the Genex tower in Belgrade and I love it. I can understand some people would think it is ugly, but this is really a building with an extraordinary design. Its location, being a gate to the city, makes it even more special...

The last skyscraper is in London and that building is deceased.

It looks like it mimics a medieval fortified tower that were prevalent as strong houses for the princes of Italy. I may be wrong though.

Sir Robert Menzie building on the Monash University Campus in Clayton...a South Eastern Suburb of Melbourne Australia. This is particuarly bad as it is the only building amoungst the residential suburbs and can been seen for miles.
