Wait a few months and then we can have a possible winner in Benidorm, Spain.

That is currently u/c.

Yeah, that's horrible.

Though, one could say I fits the context. It can hardly make the city look any worse.

Well, Benidorm is already one of the ugliest cities in Europe, it's not like it will ruin anything.

Well, I guess you're right, Benidorm is not a beautiful city at all but has some advantages: it concentrates so much people in summer in a rather small piece of land that allows the area arround to suffer less tourist pressure, which enables these other areas to be better conserved.

But yes, the building is horrible! I would rather leave it as it is now.

I agree, put some nice crown on it and a good cladding and you could still have some nice twins...

If restored in origional state, both Trellick tower and Genex towerr are masterpieces of the brutalist architecture!

furtunately these kind of things are exactly what they seem to be:
thoughtless doodles of architects with too much time on their hands
or more often: pretentious thoughtless doodles of architectural students with too much time on their hands

I quite like this building. Was it close to Brussels South station? I remember seeing a very similar building being torn down close to Brussels South circa 2001/2002.

Nope, it was on the exact spot where the Dexia tower is today, near the North station. It's the beginning of the North district right next to the North station. The tracks on this picture must be behind the buildings on the right.. Most of the buildings in this picture are no more...
