That elephant building in Bangkok is hilarious! But while it looks ridiculous I don't know if I'd say it was ugly. Something about it endears it to me; it looks kinda cute.

You think 30 St Mary's Axe is ugly?! Well, fair enough it's your opinion but I don't think you'll find much support for putting it in a 'ugliest skyscraper' thread. Buildings universally considered to be bad looking would be more apt to include.

If it isn't "ugly" then why post it in a thread titled "ugly skyscrapers"?

Sometimes ugly can change definitions depending on who is looking at it.

Thanks for the pics. I can't understand why they made it wider in the top and not in the base which is more logical.

I like that tower in Milano far better than a lot of Star-Trek/Starwars or whatever-like skyscrapers that are being built today.

This builing in seattle has always made me sick, because of its base!

It's easy to get to, though. You just follow the yellow brick road. But watch out for flying monkeys on your way.
