how about something that's ugly and bland...

...with a restaurant-in-the-round...

...and a bridge between two towers for some reason...

...and a clock tower...

...that's a digital clock?


okay!

Ah the Genex Tower, quite possibly one of the fugliest buildings in the known universe, as you have kindly pointed out it checks off most of the fugly boxes!

I personally kind of like it. It's as much Star Wars as it is Flinstones.
I remember driving by this place years ago and being completely wtf-ed. It's really oddly placed and hard to miss. Thanks for the interior photos!

I think its interesting. Not exactly attractive, but not as ugly as a lot of other buildings in this thread. Definitely different.

That Aachen hospital, on the other hand...

This isn't an ugly building but it's awesome.

The digital clock display is interesting. A new category of ugly clocktower?

Where is the faux Chrystler building here? I see a faux One Liberty Place (Philly) but don't get much of a Chrystler vibe.

Whenever I think of Serbia, I always think of the Eastern City Gate. Although the Genex Tower would make a great Clockzilla match!

My standards for what qualifies as truly ugly are pretty high, but those triplet Serbian towers definitely make the cut. They look like a portal to hell. They make the first one (Genex) look good by comparison!
