Oslos ugliest highrise imho, the Shell Building. This is actually a reclad of an older building. It used to look okay if slightly boring, then someone bright minds thought it would be a wise move to make in to this piece of shit. No wonder people are so against anything dense in this city.






Pre reclad:

First of all, it is a mater of taste, right?

To me and some other people 'Victoria tower' looks good. Anyway, i don't want to waste my time on this.

P.S. i guess, you haven't even seen any pctures of the tower just try to judge from a not a very good visualisation.

heh. Sorry, just my opinion. Maybe horrible IS too strong a word, so I will go with, I seriously don't like it.

Really? I love that campus.

The tower is a later addition, actually, and virtually unusable these days due to fire restrictions (single staircase). But I think it fits to the ensemble.

There's something typical about the complex though: no windows out, only (lots of) skylight - the owner believed it would only disturb the workers

I don't think its that bad at all! For some reason, its a building which I'd expect to see in Europe. Though Wright's Price Tower is by a large margin superior imo

Although I don't know if this has been posted or before, but this is probably the ugliest structure that has existed...

I really did not like that structure, it was not fitting to the skyline imo
The infamous Kowloon Walled City... Yes it was posted before (though technically not a single building) and it's indeed horrendous beyond belief. Looks like a setting for a horror sci-fi movie or something.
