Everything that was bad with that era of post-modernism. Just so terrible.

Yeah, personally I think Houston’s Federal Bank Building is much worse (same architect).

I'll see your Wroclaw Sky Tower and raise you a Kunsthaus Graz:

This is basically the architectural equivalent of this. Seriously.

It also looks like Simpsons animation come to life. WTF is with the blue lines between the 'bricks'?! It's a mockery of architecture.

That is one of the worst I have ever seen. It looks like a sea cucumber meets vibrator meets tentacle monster meets cheese grater jail.
