Wow! They chose quite an awesome building for being ugly! I love it, and based on the window arrangements, i would almost never love a building like that!

I think the reason why a lot of people find it as one of the ugliest buildings in the country is because of it's unusual cladding, and razor-shaped (head) This building has three nine-metre wind turbines at the top, which are rated at 19 kW each and are anticipated to produce 50MWh of electricity per year. (ps, people call it razor tower)

Not the skyscraper but worst building i've ever seen
it's basilica in Lichen (Poland)
built 1994-2004. It's some sort of pseudo-catholic theme park (but people who built it named it church).




great art



observating deck at the top of the tower (141,5 m )
