Dude, seriously? The very definition of having a problem with someone's opinion is questioning how they can have it.

The Verizon building is just ugly 'cause of the Verizon signage. Just like the MetLife building and GE building

I think the UN tower was ugly before the reclad, but now it's just absolutely stunning.

Did you even read what I wrote? I said I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEM WITH HIS OPINION. So why do you keep acting as if I would attack him? And btw, how can you say that it's ugly is just a phrase not an attack and not questioning of one's opinion

I see a question mark so I think it qualifies as a question.

Actually these apartments are a true masterpiece. I'd love to live in one of them, just look at how huge and sunny their balconies are. There's nothing better than reading a book on a sunny summer day one a balcony

For me, it doesn't only look like the 1 WTC, but it also looks like it's been stretched to 700 metres high and very fat at the bottom. That's why I think it's so ugly and bad

I know some of them may not be skyscrapers, but these slum "buildings" in Mumbai are ugly.

Yeah the building is spoiled by its base. But actually it could be better if they use dark glasses paneling on the curved concrete wall to reduce ugliness..

What?

This is an amazingly beautiful and elegant design. Even better than 1WTC now because the design is more "pure" and the base is better.

That glass towers aren't that ugly.
These are ugly:

Nan Fung Plaza in Hong Kong:

Hung Hom Peninsula:

These are all in Hong Kong, but such ugly residential towers stand everywhere.

Well, I don’t think the second one is ugly. With al those blue glasses it looks modern to me.
