Please do not be fooled by the blue sky, contrived angle, or white poles in the foreground

Utterly without redemption is the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS), a building that casts pall of brutalist gloom over the southern (arse-end) of the city. The tangible grit in the air of this part of the city is incorporated in its facade, which looks better here than it really is. It has single-handedly held back that area of the city for decades.

I had the misfortune to work for some years in a newspaper office across the road. This building is to the urban cityscape what Leonard Cohen is to music: a dirge of a building, a building to jump from rather than occupy.

I believe it was designed in their own School of Architecture. That's why, until now, you have never heard of the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) School of Architecture, have you?

Just to arrive there at the beginning of each day is a downer, to spend many hours there is to get progressively meaner and more feral, and to leave it is a release.

Enjoy. I'm not fond of this building ...

P.S. I think the die-back in the trees in the foreground is caused by the building.

The Austrian Cultural Forum looks like the nose of a swordfish.

They just have to make it curve forward as if its going to tip over. IF only they got rid of the curve, the tower would be beautiful.

I admit this well known building is no match to some of the monstrosities already posted but I think it deserves at least to be mentioned in this thread:

I know this isnt a skyscraper, but its officially the ugliest building in Chicago, especially given its prominent location.
