That horrible Michigan castle must have been developed by the same people who designed this:

Wouldn't want to live there, but that is a bold statement.

I hate to slag people (hopefully none of them posts here!) but, the architecture firm's work is... uninspiring:

Wow. The Novosibirsk Hilton?

Just looked it up, this is in Kalingrad (fmr Königsberg). This epic monstrosity was built on the site of Königsberg Castle. I guess the postwar Soviets REALLY wanted to erase any remains of the decadent West.

I worship, love, adore raw concrete in buildings, I just want to go up and give buildings like this a big kiss! To me, raw concrete is beautiful! Far better than stucco! I just love the emanation of solidity! A building like this will be around another 200-300 years.

"Fugly!" - it's almost in the name!

Interestingly, Stantec, a pretty substantial A&E firm, has an office in there. Apparently, it's pretty modernized on the inside, and it's still the largest commercial office building in Tucson. Completed in 1975 it is 261,000 SF & 16 stories. The annual "Climb for the Fallen" charity event sounds fun.

I don't live too far from that building in Tucson, it has cool blue light at the top of the tower and I can see the lights from the street I live on. I expect one day it will be converted into a condo tower.
