1. Look at the thread's name. Is it skyscraper?
2. It's not that bad ;] I think it's quite interesting :]

It once was the largest social housing block in Europe with some 882 flats (on 31 floors).
Since then, the number of flats has been reduced to 750, and there is a plan to reduce it again to 616.
And this is definitely not an ugly building. It's a massive masterpiece of public housing !

Here are some pics I took of this building 2 years ago :

But I've been wanting this building to be converted to a n energy-efficient and eco-friendly one. And I hope the reduction doesn't require demolition of any party of the building, that will ruin its notability.

I totally agree with you...it is not ugly...
Many of the buildings posted on this thread are not ugly, most of them are strange....

Except for the "spire"..... that one is ugly for sure !
just joking

I've always hated the Wells Fargo center in Phoenix. I especially hate the color, it's terrible.



I also hate this in Phoenix as well

...but those aren't as hideous as this which is in Tucson:



What the hell, it still looks like it's under construction! The brown glass doesn't even match, plus it looks like my marble kitchen counter top. What were they thinking when they designed this junk?
