Boston has One Western Avenue, a student residence that seems to follow the hideous trend of mismatched Tetris windows while also looking like a godawful concrete bunker.

For Nashville, although I actually kind of like it for it's unique quirks, most would probably say The United Artists building in Music Row.
It's... different.

WTF is that thing? I’m guessing this is somewhere in Asia? It’s bizarre but the repeated tower motif combined with overall bunker shape almost makes it look like a mormon temple.

El Paso International Airport has absolutely no redeeming qualities, how did this get past the drawing board?

Houston’s ugliest building.

Incredibly soulcrushing as well as ugly, it looks like it has no windows .
