These are the world's 10 ugliest buildings and believe us they ARE truly heinous

Architecture can really make or break a city - here are ten blunders we're sure the designers would like to forget...


Geisel Library

This questionable building is found at the University of California in San Diego. It's named after Audrey and Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss), so we don't understand how an ode to creators of such beautiful tales turned out to be so monstrous.

Verizon Building

This architectural disaster sullies the sparkling skyline of the Big Apple. It stands at whopping 32-storeys high, and there's nothing subtle, or indeed tasteful, about it.

432 Park Avenue

Deemed resemblant of a giant matchstick, new-addition to New York, 432 Park Avenue continues to be a bone of contention. At 426 metres high, composed of a mere 96 floors, it is the tallest residential building in the world. That being said, at the end of the day it still looks like a stack of Rubik's cubes.

The Walkie Talkie

Generally thought to be the least popular building in Britain, The Walkie Talkie in London has previously been described as a 'gratuitous glass gargoyle graffitied on the skyline'. Offensive and brash, it is a new breed of in-your-face heinous.

Montparnasse Tower

Absolutely butchering the traditional Haussmannian architecture for which Paris is so well-loved is the boisterous Montparnasse Tower. They say that you can attain unrivalled views of the city's skyline from the top of it, but that's probably because you are inside the one monstrosity which could ruin the view.

Ryugyong Hotel

Doesn't the nickname 'The Hotel of Doom' say it all? 105-storeys worth of grim, this certainly isn't something to write home about, North Korea.

Zizkov Tower

Prague stands tall as a bohemian mecca for architecture and history lovers alike. Unfortunately, its cityscape is punctured by the unsightly Zizkov Television Tower, which was built during the communist regime, and is of questionable character.

National Library of Kosovo

A deserving contender for the title of the world's ugliest building, the National Library of Kosovo is the embodiment of an eyesore. Brutalist architecture at its worse, it doesn't emanate an air of sanctity like most other libraries seem to do.

Aldar HQ

This garish beast is located in Al Raha, Abu Dhabi. It was the first circular building of its kind in the Middle East, but let's just say we're hesitant to congratulate the designers on their architectural prowess.

Torre Glòries

Said to be a key symbol of contemporary Barcelona, Torre Glòries stands unashamedly alongside Gaudi's architectural marvels. The Spanish skyscraper gives the Gherkin a run for its money in terms of how phallic it is, but there's no denying what a sight for sore eyes it is. What a pickle!
