The Brooklyn Bridge, right where you want your ugly concrete slabs.

The hell? Did they give up on a face lift halfway through?

Yes the facelift is “finished”, makes it look even worse if you ask me.

I know right, before at least the design itself was inoffensive.

Speaking of hilariously bad buildings in NYC how has the Westin near Times Sqaure not been posted on one of these threads yet?

I know some people like this, but I've never been a fan of the 411 East Wisconsin Center in Milwaukee. It seems lazy, like the architect handed the developer a sheet of graph paper and said, "here you go, build this."

also, this was a trend for awhile that I never liked--attaching a "restaurant-in-the-round" to the top of a hotel, like a UFO just landed on it (this is the Hyatt in Milwaukee):

YES!!! I hate that as well, we in Canada have the Harbour Center in Vancouver.

It also has a very prominent place on the waterfront.

^damn you beat me too it. Until I moved to Vancouver I had assumed it was a tower obscured by a building.

I don't understand harbor centre. Let's have a building. No wait, a tower. No, a building. No a tower. Wait, lets have a buildower! No, a towlding!

So ugly, I almost love it.

The Economist compared it to the Mos Eisley cantina in the original Star Wars and quotes anthropologist Gordon Mathews: "whereas the illegalities in Chungking Mansions are widely known, the wondrousness of the place is not."

As architecture is obviously subjective I know some people like this building but I sure don't. The saddest thing is, it's just finishing construction in my hometown. It's as though the architect liked a particular style of architecture and then decided to add a different style, and then another, and finally said, "fuck it, i'll just mix them all together"

:haha:, when I first saw it I thought the same thing seeing it in person is a very surreal thing.
