First opened to the public in 2002, this building looks like a mess of metal junk. For a renowned architectural firm like Lab Architecture Studio, with the help of Bates Smart, this is a very underwhelming design. We’re pretty sure the people in Melbourne, Australia have a lot of negative things to say about it. It looks like scrap metal was just put together in random order, to be honest.
This building can be found in Misnk. It was designed by Viktor Kramarenko and Mihail Vinogradov. These two came up with something that is far from anything lovely or pleasing. We wouldn’t be surprised if it transformed into a robot, though.
This building in Nanterre, Paris, France is also known to many as the Tours Nuages. It was built back in 1977, thanks to a design by Emile Aillaud. We don’t know what she was smoking at the time. We don’t want any of it either.
If you wanted to go on a picnic, you’d bring your own basket of goodies. However, this building in Newark, Ohio just reminds us all too much that bigger isn’t necessarily better. It’s like the designers were mocking the whole concept of a picnic. As a building, those two handles up top have absolutely no functionality whatsoever, which makes us wonder what the point really was.
It is the first ever skyscraper in the world to ever grace a circular shape. Abu Dhabi sure does have a lot of achievements in the architectural world then. However, it almost seems like a glorification of excess in architectural design. Besides, it’s not all that beautiful to look at, to be very honest.
This is apparently the tallest skyscraper in Johannesburg. Yet, to see this being the lone towering presence in the city, it’s pretty unfortunate. Surely, there could’ve been something a lot better looking than this. Thanks, Manfred Hermer, you just built something that was utterly plain.
