the structure reflected indigenous architecture, subjectively I don't necessarily find it ugly,

but using that deck as carpark instead of greenery is indeed ugly.

For me.....

morbidly sliced in half

then topped with a chinese cap

They're public housing, most likely they won't be demolished any time soon.

DOUBLE POST.

If you think Al Quds Tower in Doha is a plain, and a tacky supertall, then put the tower here.

Is this ugly building already mentioned?



This ugly building is located next to the Brooklyn Bridge, so it is often to find in Brooklyn Bridge pictures.



But the new owner plans to install a curtain wall. So perhaps in the future it will look like in this animation:

I'm not a fan of NYC either... so I'll say this looks a little ugly.

NYC's ugliest cancelled building. Ever. Designed. EVER.



Just looks so ugly that I can't stand the design

Thank god it wasn't built. It would have made NYC 1000x uglier. I'm not a fan of NYC, so... sorry to all NY'ers.
The NYSE tower is one of the most beautiful cancelled buildings, how can you say that it's ugly?

The same way you can constantly talk about roof height with annoying cheerleader smilies afterwards: it is his opinion, whether you like it or not.

It's an interesting design, but it's just not New York. Something like that would be better in San Francisco.

But I didn't do anything to him, I just stated my opinion. I have absolutely no problem with his opinion
