    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 [​IMG] 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. [​IMG]

    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.
