I went to Yahoo this a.m. and was greeted by a photo of Boston City Hall (above) and the headline 10 top ugly buildings and monuments. I have to say that I agree with whomever picked this list that Boston City Hall is pretty awful. For me, it's not so much, that it's visually unappealing (though it is), I dislike how it looms over the stark plaza in front of it and it's not much better on the inside.
However, I have to disagree with their inclusion of the Scottish Parliament (above). Its a strange building, to be sure, but I think its very visually interesting. Visit the Holyrood website for lots of photos and a virtual tour, and let me know if you agree.
