In one interview, the interviewee said a word that made him so impressed. He said: Aesthetics is a kind of ability. Well... I suspect that many architects may seem to have lost this ability... In this world, there are really some skyscrapers that are always exceptionally dazzling and can't be ignored. Well, I mean, ugly people can't ignore it. The "Architecture Abstracts" magazine selected the world's ugliest 30 skyscrapers. Many of these ugly skyline skyscrapers are located in Germany and the United States. It is probably a daunting task for "steel straight men" designers who specialize in technology and industry to design beautiful and elegant buildings. However, China’s skyscrapers have not been spared, and Shanghai’s Oriental Pearl has been listed among the most ugly buildings.
