This is NOT "guess the city"!
Ah dang it , I edited out a whole sentence in which I told about the city - it's Frankfurt. Sorry for that.

That's good, but most of the people here at least have a bit of taste when it comes to architecture. I met many people in my life who say that it's a really awesome structure.

This "Soviet monster" looks unfinished so it's quite unfair to post it as "ugly building" it's more like a construction site. As for the other examples they look fine if you ask me.

Just like the old WTC was very ugly - just two grey bland concrete pillars...but many new yorkers loved it...

I can't believe no one has put the 'metlife' building in New York on hgere yet...not only is it ugly, It ruins many views of/from midtown.

Which one do you mean? The 1909 one or the 1963 one? The 1909 one is an extremely ugly building but the 1963 one is beautiful

I agree on the point that Warsaw needs a modern supertall. I think also the New York style art-decor tower will certainly give Warsaw a historic touch. Warsaw really needs some world class skyline.

What's the history behind this building you speak of? I'm not from Poland and I'd like to know

It's a gift from Stalin but few people care about it this days, it's one of the main symbols of Warsaw and I doubt it will change any time soon especially since it's on the heritage list.

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 souls of these buildings must have offended atheism and were sent to exile in Siberia.

Agreed. This Soviet era structure is protected now and seen as a historical building. Warsaw's skyline already has a few great buildings and is competing for one of the best skylines in Europe.

I live in a commieblock and like it although they painted it brown few years ago, it sure better than some dirty old buildings without natural sunlight.

The Dubai Marina is really ugly (but not as ugly as the ones in Petržalka).
