It's funny. This is the "ugly skyscrapers" thread, and in it I have found some of the most interesting structures in the world.

Not only because it is absolutely hidious, but also because it is actually built on a plot where the height is limited to 10 levels because of the UNESCO protection of part of the Istanbul skyline. After protests the judge decided it to be an illegal skyscraper ... but as far as I know it's still there ...

A building can be interesting and ugly at the same time.

The way the thread was going it was inevitable that a building like John Hancock Center would end up here. After all, according to this thread, the definition of "ugly" is "not just another monotonous steel and glass box"
