Sheffield Hallam University; U.K.Resembling a mash up of a Jiffy Pop package, a salad spinner, and a food processor, this unusual complex was originally built as the National Center for Popular Music. When it closed down after just over a year of business it was sold to Sheffield Hallam University and is now the school's student union.
Grand Lisboa Hotel; MacauWith a solid resemblance to the I Dream of Jeannie lamp, this flashy structure can at least be admired for its campiness. As if it weren't flashy enough as is, the exterior actually lights up with over one million colorful LED lights.
M2 Building; JapanA creation of lauded Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, the M2 is disjointed, depressing, and downright dirty. VirtualTourist.com member "robertbaum" said it all: "The building seems to be used by a funeral service provider."
Spruce Tree Center; MinnesotaProving that it's not easy being green, the Spruce Tree Center is like an 80s version of the Emerald City. Occupying a significant chunk of city real estate, it almost forces residents to look at it.
Palace of Justice; ItalyIt's almost impossible to believe that the same city that's home to the Uffizi, the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, and the Ponte Vecchio could also be home to this. While it would be a blight almost anywhere, this structure, which looks like three buildings that got into a wreck with each other, seems especially out of place here.
