10 Ugliest Buildings in the World

post #1 of 374
Thread Starter 
All according to VirtualTourist.com

I'm surprised Ryugyong Hotel isn't number one and TBH, I kind of liked the Missing Parts building for Petrobras. Rio's Cathedral could have made the list, and it certainly is the ugliest church I've ever seen.

Ceauşescu Palace Also, most brutalism makes me feel like I'm in a utility corridor.

I'll give those a pass. They were probably built at 1/10 the cost per sq. foot.

I swear I must not have the 'orthodox unorthodox' eye for design. I saw this building a few months ago, and it seems pretty awesome. ~ H

Jardine House in Hong Kong doesn't get much love. Often called the "Building of 1,000 Assholes." Dunno if it's top 10 ugly necessarily but interesting and high-profile enough to be commented on.

I think Shanghai is full of absolutely hideous buildings, many of which are considered pretty landmark. Pearl Tower obviously, but there are also all these gaudy gold-colored buildings and crazy UFO domes on everything. Nasty.

I can't tell if you're joking or not. This is awesome.

Also, his Maison à Bordeaux has to be one of the most brilliantly designed house in the last few decades.
