Personally, I think the Abby is ok. Not very ugly, but not beautiful imo.

Soviet blocks like these are ugly. I mean, very ugly.

If you think Burj Khalifa is ugly, then you think all skyscrapers in Dubai are ugly.

Agree with Mike. That building is ugly. What's with the parking on the roof?

Not necessarely ugly. It depends how much money, time and efford they will put in the details. If so, it could be a beautiful building. Anyway, they should get rid of the parking lot on the rooftop. This should be a private garden for the residents.

Yep, the details on the building are quite good, but it's the parking lot and those silly roofs that bring it down.

Oh and WTF at the Burj Khalifa !?

Yes, it is.

I don't think anybody posted this, but the Governor Alfred E. Smith Houses in NYC are ugly. Looks like a bunch of bricks.

^ Aren't those the annoying blocks sitting next to the Brooklyn Bridge? I'd rather like to see them torn down, they ruin quite a portion of Manhattan's skyline from main views.

Here are some more ugly blocks.
