The West has been building follies of Eastern architecture for centuries, so it's about time they do the same.

China builds huge neoclassical style government buildings also. They look like bastardized US Capitol Buildings (which is also kind of weird if you think about it - the US Capitol is a Roman style building in North America which is a whole ocean away from Ancient Rome).

, Thats one ugly clock, and Clockzilla could use some backup to fight such fugly buildings. He could also use Missingsausage City Halls Clocktower as a weapon to impale the Craplers.

Yes there is, I created this thread as a form of sequel to that one. I even said in the first post on this thread.

Let it not go down in history that the Craplers are the only hardcore uglies in Dubai, there is also Silicon Oasis Gate.

this is an antique store (as you may have guessed) in Idaho City.

Idaho City is in Idaho (as you may have guessed).

Idaho Springs, however, is in Colorado. such is the mysteries of life.

Gene Kaufman buildings get my vote. His buildings are almost anti-architecture. Like purposefully opposed to being aesthetically pleasing.

Speaking of faux Chrystler Buildings UB City in Bangalore is another ugly example (although not as bad as the Dubai one).
