The Worst of the Worst: Top 12 Architectural Monstrosities of the World

Posted on Feb 24, 2016

The world is full of great architecture but it also has its fair share of the worst failures that can really stand out like a needle in a haystack. So, prepare for the hideous, prepare for the moronic, and most of all, prepare yourselves for the weirdest works of architecture from these blindly ambitious designers!

1. Malaysia’s First World Hotel

This building looks like a giant parrot! It's ugly from the inside too, the rooms are too small and the hotel is actually a casino. Did we mention that this mutant is located on an isolated mountain in the middle of the Malaysian jungle?

2. Penn Station

The rebuilding of Penn Station in NYC was a major flop if you pay attention to how it used to look like. The new station is dull, generic and totally unworthy of replacing this work of art. What a tragedy!

3. The Tianzi Hotel

Even though the Tianzi Hotel in China holds a place in the Guinness book of records, these three giant gods have changed the landscape of this city. Apparently, the facade of the building isn't very durable and the faces of the gods look like they are falling apart.

4. Hotel Ryugyong

105 stories high, this hotel in North Korea really sticks out from the rest of the capital, Pyongyang. Its construction started in 1987 and the exterior was not finished until 2011, and worst of all: the place is still not open for business!
