I actually don't think he likes Ari, IIRC.

Yes, I believe that's the case to a certain extent. People with taste in men's clothes don't name Ed Hardy studded T-shirts and square-toes Aldo shoes as the best looking items of clothing. They don't name Edward Green's shoes or a well-cut navy suit as one of the "ugliest".

My point is that what one chooses to name as his pick for "ugliest" or "prettiest" can be an indication of the person's taste level more than anything else.

Thanks for the unwarranted insult.

He does have a point. You are one of the bigger douchebags on the board.

Coming from you, it's a wonderful compliment - IIRC, I have never even been nominated for that title, while you have been a strong contender every time the title was in play.

I didn't know 187 should be put in the same bag as you - learn something every day.

I don't know if it is one of the ugliest in the world, but this pile makes me want to throw up when I see it: The LMVdR towers are beautiful. I wish we had a few things like that in SF.

Hmm. If I really think about it, I think I am the most offended by neoclassical stuff. I don't mind the really modern/abstract buildings because I see them as stylistic/contextual experiments more than anything else.

+ a lot on this Marriott. It looks like something Bob Mackie would have drafted in the '80s.

A lot of the buildings posted here aren't that bad to my (uneducated) eye.

I'm sure that you know what you like, and know what you don't like.

That being said, I find this building horrendous:
