I like the Ryugyong Hotel, but... it's really a missile.

I can't believe that no porteño commented on the ugliness of the Eva Peron Building... it is old, boring, missplaced (I know it was there before the construction of 9 de Julio Avenue, but anyway it should have been torn down with all the other really magnificient buildings that were destroyed for making place to the ave) and also is in bad condition... and with that ugly antenna...

Before the opening of the 9 de Julio Avenue:



After the opening of the avenue:

The Henninger Turm in Frankfurt can look similar to the Harbour Centre.

actually it's Richard Roger's Lloyd's bld, thanks to this piece (and not only) Rogers got Pritzker Prize, which is most honourable award an architect can get in the world

this thread is ridiculous - people are just proclaiming their tastes, what may drive to a fight with people with different tastes, where other people would join saying 'you can't argue about tastes, cause everyone got it's own!' while they not aware about existance of elementary aesthetics law which are not matter of 'taste'

Is the Pritzker Prize an award for most aesthetically pleasing building? No. That structure while very intriguing, looks much like structures in industrial parks. It is not attractive to, what would be my guess, most people.

It's one of the best skyscrapers built in the 80s. Google the interior...

...then read any architectural history book. I think it's much more successful than the Pompidou centre.

I think the Lloyds Building looks fantastic. If you want a proper ugly London tower block you need look no further than that thing standing next to The Shard.

good point, however all the awarded architects are capable of creating not only aesthetically correct buildings, but outstandingly beautiful

I love Guy's hospital and i like Renzo Piano's Shard too, they make perfet composition together, too bad guy's hospital is going to be recladed, it needs renovation but the way it is shown in renders looks terrible
