The Ugliest Buildings in the World?

The Telegraph takes a shot at identifying the 21 ugliest buildings ever designed and built. Some of their choices will no doubt surprise you, including one that hasn't even been completed.

If you believe The Telegraph, no ugly buildings were built before the 1950s, when the Torre Velasca, designed by the BBPR architectural partnership, was constructed in Milan.

Some of the avant-garde designers included in the list, such as MVRDV, may surprise you. Yet some buildings, such as the Verizon Building or 375 Pearl in New York, certainly will not.

The United States comes out relatively unscathed, with only two buildings on the list, while Eastern Europe, England, and Asia are featured prominently.
