Sometimes when traveling around the world you come across a building that is just so immensely ugly that you can`t even take your eyes of it.. There`s only been a handful of times where I've seen buildings that were so ugly that I just HAD to take a picture of them.
In the former communist states there are plenty of sad and depressive building, mostly made of concrete, but the buildings presented here have that extra little x-factor ugliness. Something special,you can belive it. It is usually a combination of misguided architecture together with decay after the ravages of time.
There is only one building that stands out as exceptional,indescribably ugly, and it has also taken a well-deserved first place. The rest of the list is more arbitrary as the ugliness in its truest form can be difficult to judge objectively.
10. Bangkok elephant building, Thailand
Orginalt concept…but relatively poorly executed
9. Ho chi minh government building
Communism has produced more ugly brick buildings than any other ideology !
8. Parliament of Romania
This reinforces my previous point. World`s second biggest building after the Pentagon.
6. church in Puerto Limon Costa Rica
I have seen many ugly churches, but this one really takes the cake an eats it too
5. ugly concrete building Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago
probalbly one of the ugliest pieces of concrete ever made
4. Residential buildings in Vilnius, Lithuania
I had the dubious honour of staying one night in this house, and can report that the inside is actually worse than the outside.
3. Random house in northern Montenegro
Wecame across this on a roadtrip in northern Montenegro. Montenegro is possibly the country in the world where I have seen most ugly buildings.
2. Ugly building in San Jose,Costa Rica
I have seen many square brick buildings, But what separates this from the masses of concrete buildings is that ALL the windows are behind bars, and there are NO windows on the side of the building. Must be the world's darkest and most depressing place to work, but I think it is a court/legal building,so those Lawyers and parasites probably embrace the darkness..
1. The Pyramid in Tirana,Albania
This was so bad that it actually inspired this article. It is so ugly that it's almost magical. It was fortunately a little fun and interactive, it was in fact possible to climb this thing(at your own risk). It was built by the daughter of the dictator Enver Hoxha for whatever reason.
