Located in Havana, Cuba, this building was first introduced to the public in 1985. It looms over a lot of the smaller buildings around it like an intimidating figure. Designed by Alexander G. Rochegov, it’s not the best representation of Russia. It just looks way too domineering and fear-inducing for anyone to ever consider going inside it.
This building is really horrible in its design. Looking at it, it does remind you of an elephant. However, it’s also quite bland overall. The designer, Sumet Jumsai, probably didn’t realize that his own creation would make it to the list of the ugliest buildings in the world and wished that he could do it all over again.
