Some of these buildings would be right at home in the Soviet Union.

Cannot be topped. Hatred is too kind a word, ugly (re: Chad Kroeger) is not nearly severe enough to adequately describe that cat's asshole of a face.

Maybe I've developed strange taste over the past few years, but I actually don't mind most of the buildings being posted. The brutalist stuff especially is fairly interesting. And while certainly ugly, places like Hamilton's steel mills have an iconic factor that can't be discounted.

Now those abortions from Edmonton posted above - that's the kind of thing I can get on board as being hideous! Not intending to disparage Edmonton, since there are similar projects in all Canadian cities:

Newish (!) rental complex at Dupont + Lansdowne in Toronto... truly awful.

What's going on with the overhaul of Fenwick anyway? Has it been approved yet?
